Dresden - city of culture

Pillnitz Palace and Park

Set within the picturesque Elbe landscape, the summer residence of the royal court of Saxony blends architecture with landscape design to exceptional effect. The Riverside Palace and Upper Palace were built in the early 18th century and reflect the period's fashion for oriental design. The extensive parkland, which unites the rigid symmetry of the baroque style and the informality of English style landscaped gardens, is home to a much-admired camellia that is over 200 years old. Highlights inside the palace building include the museum of applied arts and the Schlossmuseum of the New Palace.
