Dive into the world of famous and unique European masterpieces from the Middle Ages and the Renaissance to the Baroque era.

Rubens Neptun
Raffael Sixtinische Madonna 1512

For the rulers of Saxony, Italian painting was as interesting as the painting of the Netherlands. On our guided tour we will see paintings by Tiziano, Veronese, Raffael and Canaletto, as well as pictures by Peter Paul Rubens, Anthonis van Dyck, Rembrandt van Rijn and Jan Vermeer van Delft. But there is also beautiful Spanish, French and German painting to be find – Esteban Murillo, Claude Lorrain, Lucas Cranach and Albrecht Dürer are just a few famous names.

Canaletto Dresdner Neumarkt
