Green Vault (Grünes Gewölbe)
The Grüne Gewölbe or "Green Vault" contains the crown jewels and other treasures collected by the Saxon royal family over the centuries. Most pieces date back to August the Strong's time. Visitors can admire the breathtaking crown jewels, as well as hundreds of magnificent items that once belonged to the royal household including clocks, mirrors, candlesticks and silver services. Perhaps the most impressive piece is the carving of the "Delhi Court Celebrating Mogul Aurangzeb's Birthday," which features hundreds of faces intricately carved in minuscule cherry stones.
One of the most spectacular displays of gem stones and jewelry in the world. Incredible to see the wealth of these pre-Germany princes and their families. Unbelievable collections of emarlads, rubies, saphires ets. Valuable historical information and shere beauty. Very worth while and well worth the money. Most suitable for adults and teans - unless you have some junior rock hounds.
The Gr�ne Gew�lbe was an experience I never had before, I have seen thr Royal Crown Jewels of England the Topcapi Museum in Istambul and many other treasurer places in the world but in my opinion nothing can touch this exibit. The artisans craftmanship of this time period is unsurpased.When you leave the museum you are just in awe of what the royal house of Saxony had accumulated during their reign.
I highly recommend this exibit when you visit Dresden, Peter Jungk
