Music is simply a part of the DRESDEN ZWINGER. Every stone, every figure and every nymph of this unique baroque venue seems in perfect harmony. In 1709 Augustus II the Strong, the famous king of Saxony, ordered the former Dresden fortress to be converted into an orangery. Matthäus Daniel Pöppelmann was comissioned to build a giant pleasure garden with pavillons, gardens and galleries. At one of those pavillons the marble hall impresses with beautiful simplicity and magnificent acoustics.
