Dresden - Residenzschloss

Innere Altstadt | Taschenberg

Dresden Castle or Royal Palace has been the residence of the electors and kings of Saxony of the Albertine line of the House of Wettin for almost 400 years. It is known for the different architectural styles employed, from Baroque to Neo-renaissance (1533-1899).

Today, the residential castle is a museum complex that contains the Historic and New Green Vault, the Numismatic Cabinet, the Collection of Prints, Drawings and Photographs and the Dresden Armory with the Turkish Chamber. It also houses an art library and the management of the Dresden State Art Collections.
