The Green Vault (Grünes Gewölbe) is a museum in Dresden that holds the largest collection of treasures in Europe and contains many exhibits from the Baroque to Classicism. The Green Vault is named after the formerly malachite green painted column bases and capitals of the main rooms. The museum opened in 1759, which makes it one of the oldest museums in the world. The museum features two exhibitions: The Historic Green Vault (Historisches Grünes Gewölbe), famous for its splendors of the historic treasure chamber and the New Green Vault (Neues Grünes Gewölbe) that focuses on individual object.

If you are in Dresden, a visit to the Green Vault is definitely recommended! There are really amazing pieces in this museum, including many jewels paintings and sculptures, all part of the incredible collection of beautiful objects of King Augustus. The amazing objects of incredible craftsmanship are on display in beautiful rooms. We didn’t really need a tour and visited the museum on our own instead, which was really fine for us. Recommended!
