6. Residenzschloss Courtyard

The Residenzschloss is another building that was restored after WWII. But what is fascinating with this building is not the outside, but two of the museums inside, the Historische Grüne Gewölbe and the Neue Grüne Gewölbe (The Historic and New Green Vaults). They host an awesome collection of very delicate items, many of them produced in the days of August the Strong. No photos were permitted, so I don't have any pictures, but what you see there is simply amazing. Not the least the Historic Green Vault which is as August the Strong designed it back then.
