  • The best attraction in all Dresden. This is 3 museums combined in one place. The porcelain, math and science, and the art gallery. Going over renovation works but still a marvel

  • Beautiful place with so much history. Visited the places whilst on a trip to Dresden and it’s so beautiful with a lot of history dating back to Augustus the strong. I recommend a visit whenever in Dresden. I had a tour guide who said a lot about the history who was very knowledgeable and enthusiastic.
  • I think Dresden is one of the most beautiful towns of Germany. I had visited the town back in 2003 and l saw even more beautiful and well maintained facades and streets in 2021. It is definitely worth visiting.
