Der Zwinger in Dresden, Sachsen, Eastern Germany

Der Dresdner Zwinger is a palace built in Baroque style, designed by court architect Matthäus Daniel Pöppelmann. It served as orangery, exhibition gallery, and festival arena of the Dresden Court. The location was formerly part of a fortress of which the outer wall is conserved. The name derives from the German word Zwinger (an enclosed killing ground in front of a castle or city gate); it was for the cannons that were placed between the outer wall and the main wall. The Zwinger was not enclosed until the Neoclassical building by Gottfried Semper called the Semper Gallery was built on its northern side.

Today, it is a museum that contains the Gemäldegalerie Alte Meister (Old Masters Picture Gallery), the Dresden Porcelain Collection (Dresdener Porzellansammlung) and the Mathematisch-Physikalischer Salon (Royal Cabinet of Mathematical and Physical Instruments).

Ich bin zu faul zu recherchieren, würde aber gerne aber einen Datenbank auf Bundesländer sortiert über Schlösse, Bürge, Klöster, Abteien, historische und kunksthistorische Denkmäler doll wilkommenheissen. 🙂 Hast du einen Tipp?

Haha, was ist, wenn ich auch zu faul bin, das zu gogglen?

Kannst ja mal hier anfangen:

Ansonsten google mal „Burgen und Schlösser“ für jedes Bundesland einzeln, ich sehe da eine Menge Listen. Viel Spaß beim anschauen. .)

Das Schloss Nymphenburg is a Baroque palace in…

Das Schloss Nymphenburg is a Baroque palace in München (Munich), Bayern, Southern Germany. It was the main summer residence of the rulers of the House of Wittelsbach. The central pavilion was completed in 1675; the palace was gradually expanded and transformed over time. For a long time, it was the favorite summer residence of the rulers of Bavaria. King Max I Joseph died there in 1825; his great-grandson King Ludwig II was born there in 1845. In 1863, the only meeting between Ludwig and Otto von Bismarck took place there, although they remained connected in a lifelong friendship.

Today, Nymphenburg is open to the public and also continues to be a home for the head of the House of Wittelsbach, Franz, Duke of Bavaria. To the Jacobites, who trace the line of legitimate British monarchy down through the legal heirs of James II of England, the head of the House of Wittelsbach is the legitimate heir of the Stuart claims to the thrones of England, Scotland, France, and Ireland; this claim is however not being actively pursued.
