Royal seat and cultural center of the Saxon capital: Dresden Royal Palace tells of almost 800 years of history. Severly damaged durch World War II, the restored and reconstructed palace houses the Dresden State Art Collections today.
The façades of the Great Castle Courtyard show the demanding art of Sgraffito in an exemplary way.
Overarched by a seemingly hovering roof construction made of transparent plastic pillows, the Small Castle Courtyard recounts of bold Renaissance architecture.
Not far from the castle, 25,000 tiles of Meissen Porcelain form a 102-meter-long parade of the Saxon rulers - the Procession of Princes, the most famous mural of Saxony. On its rear, there is the Dresden Stable Yard. Enclosed by arched collonades and several historic buildings, the courtyard provides the perfect backdrop for a medieval Christmas fair every December.
