    Very nice piece of baroque architecture!
    We visited the building complex and found countless of wonderful details as well as stellar places for photography. Would recommend to anyone coming to Dresden, especially since you can access all the outdoor areas for free. Special mention of the possibility to walk on top of the walls as from there you can see some gorgeous details of the design up close!

    Beautiful but garden under construction
    The palace is very beautiful, however, the garden is a construction site right now. As we arrived early in the day, it took us a while to find the stairs to the terrace (some entries are within cafe which opens at 10am). Generally, not lots of signs in the city to guide you to the places.
