The Historic Green Vault Museum is Dresden’s most stunning museum. The private treasure chamber of Saxon Kings boasts the world’s finest collection of jewelry, masterpieces of goldsmith’s art as well as a selection of precious objects made of amber and ivory.

Saxon King Augustus the Strong amassed this incredible collection of jewelry treasures in the early 1700s (and made goldsmiths across Europe happy…) as an expression of his absolutist power and enormous wealth – aiming to impress Royal Peers and subordinates alike.
