Zwinger Palace

Zwinger Palace

This gem of late Baroque architecture was designed by court architect Matthäus Daniel Pöppelmann and built from 1710 to 1728. Today the Zwinger is a museum complex containing among others the Old Masters Picture Gallery (Gemäldegalerie Alte Meister), where the famous "Sistine Madonna" from Raphael can be admired, and the Porcelain Collection (Porzellansammlung).
