Pillnitz Palace: three in one

Pillnitz palace is the country residence of princes of Saxony. Today this palace ensemble is already situated within Dresden boundaries. It was built by famous architect Pöppelmann in the first half of the 18th century. The construction was ordered by the prince electorate Augustus the Strong who desired to have a summer facility in Chinese style that used to be in fashion in those times. It turned into not one but three palaces. Water Palace, Mountain Palace, and New Palace located between the other two, create a continuous architectural composition stretching along Elbe. On the other side of the palace there is a botanical garden with a collection of palms. Another attraction of the garden is a 200 years old camellia.  

There are two museums functioning in Pillnitz: Pillnitz palace museum and museum of folk and peasant trades.
