One of the nice buildings to see at Schloßplatz is the Neo-Renaissance style Georgenbau, which forms an entrance into the city centre after crossing
The building forms part of the Royal Palace, serving as an entrance into the city after crossing the Elbe River and walking through Schloßplatz. Today you walk through the three arched entrances of Georgenbau and enjoy the figures and other decorative carvings which enrich the three entrances.
The facade of this building is quite attractive as well, featuring a step gable adorned with statues and ornamentation. Originally built in the 1530s and was the cities first Renaissance style building. Rebuilt multiple times including after being destroyed by fire in 1710 as well as the Dresden Bombings in 1945, the building today was constructed in 1960s in the beautiful appearance you see today.
Overall, it is an attractive building worth spending a few minutes to enjoy and photograph if you are a fan of architecture and historical buildings. You can then walk through its open entrance as if you were entering the old castle during centuries past and make your way to the Royal Palace and the the famous Green Vault attractions.
