It was easy to get tickets here probably because it's winter. 10 euros for each adult. This is a once-in-a-lifetime chance to see the famous Raphael's Sistine Madonna and those famous putti (cherubs)! Plenty of other masters as well like Rembrandt, Peter Paul Rubens, Canaletto....More

The Galery is located within one of the Zwinger Palace's Galeries/Museums in its large garden. Tizian, Zurbaran, Rembrant, Vermeer , Tintoretto are one of the names to see of their works of art . Highly recommended to see.
