Museums, Art and Culture

50 museums, 60 galleries and 36 theatres and stages – a true pleasure for the emotions and intellect alike, and ideal day and evening programmes for every taste and mood.
World-famous attractions are the Old Masters Picture Gallery with Raphael’s “Sistine Madonna”, the former royal treasure collection, the Green Vault and the Albertinum as a museum of contemporary art from the 19th to 21st centuries.

Dresden has earned a similar world reputation as a city of music, with traditions stretching back over 700 years. The Semper Opera House, the Staatskapelle orchestra, the Dresden Philharmonic and the Kreuzchor choir are ample testimony.
Attractive festivals, exciting theatre and dance productions, and a series of top events are occasions for a visit to the city whatever the season.

Experience Dresden!
