The Dresden Zwinger reviews
Very nice well-kept clean park with a very nice impressive fountain with the very nice big fountain. Wonderful to linger. Super nice museum. Class porcelain exhibition. The exhibition with the historical measuring devices is also excellent. I really enjoyed the visit to the museum. Recommended.
I really liked this amazing place. The beautiful Baroque style architecture of the palace is impressive. The inner court of the palace is open for public for free. Inside the palace you can find a few great museums. To save money, you can buy a combined ticket for visiting the all three museums of the Zwinger. All these museums are very interesting and worth to visit.
