historical Green Vault
Green Vault is one of Europe’s
most sumptuous treasure chambers.
Here the Saxon king August the Strong
realized his vision of a baroque
synthesis of the arts expressing
wealth and absolutist power as well.
About 3,000 items are on display
within the reconstructed interior
of the years 1732/33: not in showcases,
but like in former times standing
free on consoles in front of gorgeous
display walls or on pompous tables
in Renaissance and Baroque halls.
In this incomparable setting, the
single piece of art recedes behind
the opulent interior and sums up
to an overwhelming splendor. The
tour culminates in the Jewel Room
presenting the jewel sets of August
the Strong and his son.
The famous collection of the Wettin
electors returned to its historic
home in the Dresden Royal Palace
and re-opened to the public on the
occasion of the city’s 800th
anniversary in 2006.
