About the Museum

Dresden Residenzschloss 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. Today, the residential castle is a museum complex that contains the historical and the new Green Vault, the Cabinet of Prints, Drawings and Photographs, the Armoury and the Numismatic Cabinet. It also houses an art library and the management of the Dresden State Art Collections, which belong to the museums of the Staatliche Kunstsammlungen Dresden (SKD).

At Residenzschloss the bright-matter-of-fact architecture encounter of the palace interiors come as a suprise when juxtaposed with the singular treasures of art it houses, in an enviornment characterized by the interplay of architectural elements with both visible and hidden traces of destruction that are true to the building’s history.
