Facts

  • The Dresdner Residenzschloss, residence and administrative center of the royal Wettin family, developed over the course of several centuries.
  • First mentioned in 14th century documents, by the end of the 15th century it consisted of a palace with several wings. August the Strong undertook reconstruction after a destructive fire in 1701. The palace was largely rebuilt in the Neo-Renaissance style in 1883-1901, including reconstruction of the Hausmannsturm to its original condition. In WWII the complex of buildings was almost completely destroyed.
  • Serious reconstruction efforts didn't get underway until 1985. The phased transformation into a museum complex was scheduled to be finished in time for Dresden's 800-year jubilee in 2006 but it wasn't until 2013 that the restored castle was re-opened.
