The Green Vault Dresden – Treasury Chamber of the Saxon Rulers
A dream of gold, silver and precious jewellery awaits you in the treasury chamber of the Green Vault in Dresden – unique and magical, fantastic and glamorous.
Experience the world of representation of Royal power, as well as the outstanding beauty and perfection of artistic creativity.
On our walk through the New Green Vault, you will discover the fine art of the goldsmiths and silversmiths, jewellers and ivory artists, the stone cutters and enamellers. Learn why treasures can have different faces and experience the art of goldsmiths and jewellers as masters of illusion.
The famous Dresden Green Diamond has its place here, as well as a cherry stone with over 100 carved faces in. You will experience the fascinating works by Johann Melchior Dinglinger, the court jeweler of Elector August the Strong – his “Throne of the Grand Mogul” is a palace, made of gold, silver and precious stones. And his Golden Coffee Service is indeed the very first one of his kind in Middle Europe.
The two parts of the collection offer you a view from different sides: in the New Green Vault, you will find the most beautiful and extraordinary treasures, shown in modern rooms and the museum´s technology, allowing you to experience it all very closely. The Historic Green Vault shows the rest of the treasury, rising in a baroque art chamber full of glamour and infinite splendour.
