Highlights of Dresden's museums

What makes Dresden world-famous as a city of art and culture is its varied and unequalled museum landscape. Whether you’re more interested in history or in art – Dresden has something to suit every taste. The Old Masters Picture Gallery presents an extraordinary collection of first-rate paintings, the most famous of which is certainly Raphael’s Sistine Madonna. In the Royal Palace, the Coin Cabinet – now with a new face – showcases coins and medals from antiquity to the present. At the Museum of Technology and Industry, displays on such topics as photography, sound recording and fire usher technically interested visitors into new realms. And the Bundeswehr Museum of Military History is not only a major historical museum in Germany and one of the most innovative military museums in the world – it also offers a glorious view of the city. The summer season enhances this array with the historical gardens of Pillnitz in full blossom, luring visitors on an excursion to the banks of the Elbe. And all year round, this booklet will guide you on a journey of discovery through Dresden’s world-renowned museums.
