My visit to the green vault was a surprisingly amazing experience. You cannot dream up the wonderful collections of unique and lavish treasures inside. A must see if in Dresden - you won't regret it!

In 1991--shortly after reunification-- we visited Dresden and the ONLY Green Vault, which was in the Zwinger at the time. In November, 2018, we visited both the "Historic" and the "Neues" Green Vaults. The Neues Green Vault is far, far better than the Historic Green...More

Apparently there are 2, and I visited the old one. The displays and the reconstruction are both interesting. The ivory and gems rooms were probably the most interesting, but the whole place was worthwhile, and the audio guide is informative

I never realised that there is a time limit on how long you can stay in the Green Vault. I’ve been twice and never had a problem taking as long as I want.

I would buy the combination ticket. You could easily see everything, including the Green Vault in a half day or several hours.
