Dresden Residence Palace: Testimony to the Renaissance

The Dresden Residence Palace is one of the oldest buildings in the Saxon capital and a testimony to the Renaissance. As the ancestral seat of the Albertine line of the House of Wettin and the Saxon electors (1547-1806) and kings (1806-1918), the Dresden Residence Palace was of central importance from early on. The palace is particularly interesting from the point of view of architectural history, as various styles such as Romanesque and Historicism can be recognised in the building. Since the 1980s, the Dresden Residence Palace has been home to a total of five museums: the Historical and New Green Vault, the Coin Cabinet, the Museum of Prints and Drawings, the Armoury and the Art Library with the General Directorate of the Dresden State Art Collections.
