Even on a Monday when the galleries were closed this was well worth a visit. It's free to walk along the 'roof' of the colonnade. Seemed to be some great displays inside.

This is one of the must see things in Dresden. We have visited it several times, now in wintertime the fountains are covert, but still worth the visit. Very central in the city center. Close by different museums.
