Highlights of Dresden in 2010

DD Silhoette Abendhimmel

2010 will be a great year for Dresden again, especially for all aficionados of museums:

March 6th (probably):

Opening of the Turkish Chamber: The Royal Palace is restaurated and offers again after 60 years the Turkish Chamber. You can expect to see over 600 oriental exhibits on about 750m². „The main attractions will be the sumptuous Ottoman state tents and the extensive range of parade tack displayed on life-sized Arab stallions carved especially for the exhibition. In conjunction with chain mail, helmets, flags, weapons and robes, these textile treasures depict the fascination of the Saxon electors with Ottoman art and culture. Dresden’s collection of Ottoman and Oriental-style art is one of the biggest in Germany. Its largest piece alone – a 20-metre-long, eight-metre-wide and six-metre-high Ottoman state tent with magnificent appliqués in silk and gold leather – was extensively restored at a cost of over €3.6 million.“ (

June 2010:

Reopening of the Albertinums: Since the big flood in 2002 the museum was closed and parts of the exhibition were displayed in other museums. The restauration and construction of the new foyer are supposed to finish now and therewith all the fantastic modern and contemporary master pieces of art from the 19th century to today will be hosted again in the Albertinum on the Brühlsche Terrasse.

End of 2010:

Opening of Historical Military Museum of the German Armed Forces

November 25, 2008

Madonna meets Mao exhibition

Here a special tip for all contemporary art fans:

Selected Works from the Yageo Foundation Collection, Taiwan
Kunsthalle im Lipsiusbau (Brühlsche Terrasse)
October 31, 2008 to January 11, 2009
I have been there already and I can highly recommend it! The premises alone are worth to go there ( rough clinkerstone foyer).
The entrance is 5 € per person, 3 € for students and children. I know it sounds a little bit high first, but after you´ve seen pictures from personalities like Roy Lichtenstein, Gerhard Richter, the impressionable Cy Twombly, Andy Warhol and asian artists like Zao Wouki or Cai Guoqiang, you will forget the price quite fast.
Opening hours
10 a.m. to 6 p.m. closed Mondays
