Most tourists are advised to see the more prominent museum in the city, the Gemaldegalerie Alte Meister, so the Albertinum wasn't crowded at all. But this museum has its own superb collection, and really mustn't be overlooked. As you enter the museum, you see the...More

I thought it was a bit odd, with 'New Masters' from 1800 or so. Last time I checked, that's not that new :D Anyhow, a very well assembled chronicle from that era to German Expressionism, and beyond. There are 3 or 4 galleries in here,...More

The Albertinum houses a collection of late 19th and 20th century art and sculpture in a vast and intelligently restored palace in the heart of Dresden. Lots to see including German impressionists and moderns but the sculpture is the most interesting. Fascinating and adventurous modern...More

The dome of the arts academy is quite imposing and does look like an orange squeezer. Another great building in this city.
