Culture in Dresden
The Green Vault in the Royal Palace displays the treasury of the Wettin princes from the Renaissance to Classicism. The exhibition is divided into the Historical Green Vault and the New Green Vault. The historical section, for which only a limited number of tickets are available, presents around 3,000 exhibits in the castle vaults against a historical backdrop on magnificent display tables.
The new section is a modern treasury museum and displays works by the court sculptor Balthasar Permoser and the court goldsmith Johann Melchior Dinglinger, among others. The Residenzschloss is located directly opposite the HYPERION Hotel Dresden am Schloss.
The first opera house built by Gottfried Semper in 1841 burnt down just 28 years later, but the architect designed a new building at the request of the people of Dresden. This suffered severe damage during the Second World War, but was rebuilt according to Semper's plans by 1985. The impressive building of the Semperoper offers the best acoustic conditions. The painted decorative curtain, which weighs around 400 kilograms, is particularly impressive.
Whether you want to get to know the opera house during a ballet or opera performance or on a public guided tour - it takes less than five minutes to walk from the HYPERION Hotel Dresden am Schloss.
From 1709, Elector Augustus the Strong had the Dresden Zwinger built as a magnificent Baroque festival site with an orangery, richly decorated pavilions, gardens and galleries. As early as the 19th century, the Semper Gallery was opened here on the Elbe side as one of the most important German museum projects. Today, the museum building houses the Old Masters Picture Gallery.
Other exhibitions in the Zwinger include the Mathematical-Physical Salon and the Porcelain Collection. The Zwinger is a five-minute walk from the HYPERION Hotel Dresden am Schloss.
Dresden the "Florence of the North"
The Brühl's Terrace was built in the 16th century as part of the fortifications between the Augustus Bridge and the Carola Bridge on the banks of the Elbe. Heinrich von Brühl later had the so-called "Brühl's Splendors", a gallery, a library, the Belvedere as well as the palace and gardens built on this site, making it the "Balcony of Europe". You can also experience the Elbe at its most beautiful on a steamboat trip.
This will take you to Loschwitz with the "Blaues Wunder" bridge, the vineyard-lined banks and the three "Albrechtsschlösser" castles. It is just a five-minute walk from the HYPERION Hotel Dresden am Schloss to Brühl's Terrace, with the excursion steamers departing directly below.
