If you are in Dresden this is a "Don't Miss" visit. Beautiful works of art, architecture and sculpture throughout. Pieces from the 15th - 18th century. Lots of European masters (Raphael). Well presented. Absolutely worth seeing. 12 Euros, I think there were discounts for seniors...More

A large collection of Old Master paintings. Be aware that the Vermeer painting of a Girl reading a Letter is undergoing restoration work and is not on display.

If you are into art this is a worthy exhibition. There are plenty of exhibits on show. We enjoyed the visit but some people with young children had a poor time trying to keep the children interested.

It is one of the tourist targets, so you might encounter BUS trips there, but regardless on that, it's worth visiting it. Take voice-guide - there is a lot you can learn from it and it's also more fun to go through this huge collection....More

What a fantastic collection. We have never seen such a collection of original paintings by old masters all in one gallery. Descriptions are in both German & English. There is also an audio assistant, if required.
