The Neuer Riesensaal

The Neuer Riesensaal (New Hall of the Giants) in Dresden is the setting for a range of objects selected from one of the world's most important collections of ceremonial weapons, armour and costume: the Rüstkammer (Dresden Armoury).

More than 350 objects are displayed, including tournament and ceremonial weaponry and accoutrements. With a specific focus on Saxon court life, the exhibits show how various tournament events were carried out, and illustrate the sporting pursuits of the time and the splendour enjoyed by the Saxony electors. At 57 metres long by 13 metres wide, the Riesensaal is an extraordinary exhibit in itself.
