Former seat of the Saxon royal family, Residenzschloss Palace was built between the 12th-19th centuries and exhibits a magnificent array of different architectural features from the Romantic, Renaissance, Baroque and neo-Renaissance eras. Heavily damaged during World War II, the palace is gradually being reconstructed. The Crown Jewels, Coin Museum and Copperplate Engraving Collection will move to the palace when the building is complete. The chapel is used to stage performances by the Dresdner Staatschauspiel ensemble. There are several admission prices for the Printing Cabinet on the third floor and the famous New Green Vaults on the second floor.
