The exhibition Von Prunkgondeln, Prachtkutschen und Pferdeäpfeln – Unterwegs zur Jahrhunderthochzeit 1719 (Of gondolas, state carriages and horse manure: En route to the wedding of the century in 1719) shows how thousands of guests travelled from Vienna to Dresden and were subsequently transported around the city.

300 years ago, the bride arrived at Pirna, from where she continued her journey to Dresden. Lustgondeln anno 1719 is a re-enactment of this river trip in which ornate gondolas will travel sedately down the Elbe from Pirna to the old town of Dresden.
Dresden goes Mediterranean: in Augustus the Strong’s day, the Zwinger had a magnificent orangery. This tradition has been revived – the little orange trees return from their winter quarters, borne aloft in a parade with baroque entertainment and ample supplies of vitamin C.
