Japanese Palace

Started in 1714 and enlarged in 1723-33 in the late Baroque-Classicistic style, this four-winged building was originally intended to accommodate the porcelain collection of Augustus the Strong. This intent is still visible in the curved roofs, the relief on the gable above the portal and the Chinese herms in the inner courtyard. Today it houses the Ethnological Museum and temporary exhibitions.
