  • Great museum with a beautiful collection of old artists paintings. I really liked it. Unfortunately, there were reconstruction works in the gallery so we could not see all the halls here. Just 3 halls were available for visiting, but the price for entrance was the same as for the whole gallery.
  • Here in Dresden is one of Germany’s finest art collections (and that’s saying something). You’ll be able to visit classic paintings in a brilliantly laid out museum.
