Zwinger, Dresden Overview

The Zwinger was built on Augustus the Strong's wishes of a palace similar to that of King Louis XIV's, in Versailles.

Originally constructed as an Orangery and for court festivities, the Zwinger was eventually used for exhibitions. Architect Matth_us P_ppelmann and the sculptor Balthasar Permoser designed this yet another splendid example of late Baroque architecture. The Zwinger has opulent courtyards adorned with fountains. Beyond the courtyards lie the Gem_ldegalerie Alte Meister (Old Masters Gallery) and Porzellansammlung (Porcelain Collection), and the Mathematisch-Physikalischer Salon with its historical scientific instruments, which cannot be missed.
