2017-01-20 | Completion of the Renaissance Wing at the Royal Palace Dresden

Since the 15th century The Royal Palace of Dresden is a symbol of the power of Saxon rulers. It is also the origin of the Staatliche Kunstsammlungen Dresden (Dresden Art Collections). The Palace was heavily destroyed during the Second World War and is being rebuilt since 1985. With this stage of construction another part of the Palace will be finished and opened. From spring 2017 two new permanent exhibitions will be shown in the Renaissance Wing of the Palace. The most precious inventories of the armoury will be presented, adapted to the original building stock and combined with modern exhibition architecture.

The new permanent exhibition at the Royal Palace Dresden

On 9th April 2017 the new exhibitions will be opened. The exhibition “On the Way to Electoral Power” will focus on ceremonial weapons, textiles and portraits from the Dark Ages to the Renaissance which embody the power of the Saxon rulers. The exhibits underline both the historical and artistic highlights of their time.
The Royal Palace of Dresden offers 2 new permanent exhibitions.
The second exhibition will show a fascinating selection of Electoral Wardrobe. Original costumes from the 16th and 17th century will offer a unique glory, splendid and luxury fabrics and embroidery will feast the eyes of the visitors. After long years of restoration, 27 dresses and costumes will represent the once powerful Saxon Court. They will be shown for the first time since the evacuation due to the World War.
