The Palace with its lapidarium of sculptures
Today, the outside of the Grand Garden Palace, Saxony’s oldest baroque palace building, is restored in its old splendor again; innumerable reliefs and sculptures decorate its façade. On the inside, the ground floor accommodates original sculptures dating from the Saxon baroque, which can be seen during special exhibitions or guided tours. Concerts and theater performances are staged on the upper floor, which still bears the marks of the 1945 destruction.
