In the 19th century, Dresden architect Gottfried Semper designed the Semper wing of the Zwinger palace to house the Gemaldegalerie Alte Meister, which contains some of the most important paintings in Western art. There are key works by German masters such as Cranach and Dürer, but the greatest hits are Italian, most notably Giorgione's Sleeping Venus and Raphael's Sistine Madonna, the latter's grumpy angels having become Dresden's unofficial mascots. Bernardo Bellotto's precise Dresden cityscapes are a particular pleasure, depicting the adjoining Zwinger and the Frauenkirche, a few blocks away. Once you've had your fill of Renaissance art, check out the collection of 19th-century impressionists and 20th-century German expressionists at Gemaldegalerie's sister museum, Galerie Neue Meister, temporarily located in the Semper wing.

Open Tuesdays through Sundays 10 am to 6 pm.
