Dresden Castle or Royal Palace is one of the oldest buildings in Dresden, Germany. For almost 400 years, it was the residence of the electors and kings of Saxony of the Albertine line of the House of Wettin. It is known for the different architectural styles employed, from Baroque to Neo-renaissance.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.HistoryThe original castle was a Romanesque keep, built around 1200. The Hausmannsturm was built at the beginning of the 15th century. From 1468 until 1480, the keep was extended by the master builder, Arnold von Westfalen, becoming an enclosed four-wing construction. In the middle of the 16th century, an addition was added in the Renaissance style.After a major fire in 1701, Augustus II the Strong rebuilt much of the castle in the Baroque style. The collection rooms were created at this time in the western wing. The Silver Room, Heraldic Room and the Pretiosensaal were built from 1723–1726 and the Kaminzimmer, Juwelenzimmer (Jewel Room), Ivory Room and Bronze Room were built from 1727–1729.Arrange your visit to CAMONDAS Schokoladenkontor am Schloss Dresden and discover more family-friendly attractions in Dresden using our Dresden trip planning app.

If you love chocolate, this is the place to visit. The store offers chocolate from around the world, as well as a cafe for a steaming cup of hot chocolate. Try the chocolate ice cream on a stick covered in chocolate powder, or the vanilla ice cream with white chocolate for a real chocolate kick to keep you going while touring Dresden. The vegan chocolate ice cream is also very tasty. The prices are fair and the variety of products is amazing, like chocolate beer, rum, sardines, and other fun chocolate things to try.
