We exchanged the vouchers for tickets with a very friendly employee directly at Dresden main station without queuing. Despite the Pentecost weekend, the museums were not overcrowded and thanks to the ticket we were able to get in everywhere without waiting. We visited the Mathematics/Physics Salon and the Old Masters Picture Gallery and the various rooms of the Residential Palace including the tower. It was a wonderful day and the price of the tickets was definitely worth it, especially since they entitle you to one-time use per museum for two days. You can also split the sightseeing over two days. The most important exhibitions for us were free. If you want to see more, you have to pay extra.

Well organized and absolutely recommendable to take care of it from home - where we hadn't done that, unfortunately everything was sold out when we wanted to buy tickets on site.

Ztrávila jsem zde 4 pěkné hodiny. Až bude nádvoří opraveno, bude na Zwingeru ještě hezčí prohlídka.

Booked online, smooth transaction, everything was great!

It's pretty big. But worth it to see Madonna etleast
