Just about in the centre of the old town and one of many lovely buildings in the vicinity the Royal Palace has a quite gorgeous exterior.

Another fully restored royal residence. Definitely take the tour to understand the significance of this place in history. Tours are in English. The royale palace and surrounding area are the highlight of Dresden. Amazing restoration work. Thanks for preserving history.
