Pinacotheca "Alte Meister"

The international reputation of the Pinacotheca "Alte Meister - Old Masters" in Dresden is the result of the committed collecting activity of the Saxon electorate, with an outstanding collection devoted to German and European painting and sculpture up to 1800. You will find masterpieces by Lucas Cranach, Albrecht Dürer, Raphael, Giorgione and Tizian.

Around Raphael's "Sistine Madonna", one of the most popular works of art in the world, visitors can expect a unique journey through European art history, which cannot be retraced in any other German museum as impressively and comprehensively as in Dresden. The museum has been renovated in recent years and welcomes you with a museography that combines the heritage of the place with modern presentation. Photo: © SKD, Oliver Killig

The Historic and New Green Vault

Historic New Green Vault dresden museum

The "Green Vault" (Grüne Gewölbe) is the rich collection of objects of all origins acquired over the centuries by the princes and kings of Saxony. Formerly stored under a green vault "The Treasure Room of the House of Wettin", the collection was exhibited from 1729 onwards in nine rooms specially fitted out in the Residence Castle by Agustus the Strong. The objects on display are absolutely impressive and for many unique in the world. Gold, rock crystal and diamonds sparkle in this treasure.

Today, the Green Vault combines the old and the new: while the historic Green Vault allows visitors to immerse themselves in the authentically restored rooms of the Treasury, the New Green Vault shows the individual rooms in the best possible conditions.

Military Museum

History Military Museum dresden

The former arsenal building from the 19th century was converted from an arsenal to a museum very early on. As early as 1897, the building first housed the collection of the Royal Arsenal and later the Royal Museum of the Saxon Army. In 2011 the museum was reopened after a complete renovation by the American architect Daniel Libeskind. Cutting through the old Arsenal building, the new wedge-shaped building with its light and shadow structures referred to the turbulent German military history. At the same time, the "Libeskind Wedge" thematically resumed the bombing of Dresden on 13 February 1945.

With its collection of more than 1.6 million objects - from field postcards to tank howitzers - the Bundeswehr Military History Museum (MHM) in Dresden is one of the largest military history museums in Europe and one of the four largest history museums in Germany. Photo: © MHM/Hufton
