Schloss Und Grunes Gewolbe - Review

With a collection of treasure that would put Uncle Scrooge to shame, the Schloss und Grunes Gewolbe is one of the most magnificent sights to see in Europe. It’s known as one of the richest treasure chambers in the continent and the collection is so diverse and abundant that one would get confused at what to look at first. It is located on the first and second floors of the Dresden Castle. This museum is both fascinating and unique, and essential on every tourist’s itinerary.

The chambers column bases and capitals were once painted malachite green, thus giving it its title. It houses a variety of artistic exhibits, from Baroque to Classicism. After World War II, this structure was rebuilt and new exhibition rooms were built in order to display all the art work. The ‘Green Vault’s story started in the year 1547. It was created to be an additional west wing of the palace and it was built to withstand fires and thieves, with thick walls and iron doors and shutters protecting it.  This room was used as a treasure chamber throughout the 17th century by the rulers of Saxony, for all their important documents and jewels.

Between 1723 and ’29, the vault was open for public viewing, thanks to Augustus the Strong. He invited a select audience to view his treasures, as a symbol of his wealth and power. He exhibited his entire collection of valuable objects. Bronze statues and artwork in gold, silver, ivory and amber could now be displayed in two rooms, the Hall of Treasures and the Corner Cabinet. This style of Augustus the Strong’s was used as the framework for the reconstructed building as well. This was also the first time someone of high standing made their treasures and art accessible to the public. These rooms were left unchanged for almost two centuries.

The Green Vault was severely damaged during WWII and at the end of the war, the treasures were taken away to the Soviet Union, only to return in 1958.  In 2004, the New Green Vault was opened in the newly rebuilt Dresden Castle. In 2004 and 2006, the Neues Grunes Grewolbe and the Historiches  Grunes Grewolbe were opened, with exceptional treasures on display. The former houses around a thousand carefully selected pieces of art which can be viewed close up in glass show cases. This is the ‘New Green Vault’. Statuettes and other fascinating objects, made of gold, silver, gemstones, enamel, mother of pearl, coconuts, ostrich eggs and ivory are kept here. In the other room lies works of art, set in Baroque. This room is an exact replica of the one used by Augustus, thus called the ‘Historical Green Vault’. This chamber consists of 9 other rooms, with different, themed displays of artwork created in a stunning variety of luxurious materials. Visiting this opulent, one of a kind treasure chest is sure to be quite an experience for whoever visits so be sure to put this on your list. Also, visit the popular attractions in the city by following Dresden itinerary 1 day.

Schloss Und Grunes Gewolbe, Dresden Reviews

Google+
  • Amazing place. You can spend full day here. 12€ entrance fee (cards are accepted). Don't forget coin to use the luggage storage (no entrance with bags) - 1 or 2€ (see no sense in that - you'll receive your coin back after you take your belongings). Tons of masterpieces, gorgeous view from the tower! A place that must be visited!

  • Precious pieces of treasures. I found the audio guide very good. It's such a treat for your eyes. Take note that you can't take pictures there.

  • Adding to my friends, you get an audio guide which takes you through the exhibits without a guide. If you don't have time to see everything then make sure you make a choice and visit at least one vault. The photos are from part one gallery!! A jewel collection.

  • There is so much to see here it is fabulous. Too much for me to cope with in an afternoon, but great as I will be going back a number of times

  • You can't take pictures inside the old vault which was disappointing. The audioguide tended to start talking if semi random things. You also have to pay sepearantly for the old vault so I reccomened starting early and getting a combined pass (around 30 euro), but it allows you access to other museums around.
