The Historische Grüne Gewölbe (Historical Green Vault) on the ground floor of the Residenzschloss, together with the Neues Grünes Gewölbe (New Green Vault) on the floor above, is one of the most famous and richest treasury museums in the world.
It is a visual journey through time into the Baroque period, which begins when the visitor enters the historic Green Vault with a state-of-the-art lock, which guarantees the protection of around 3,000 free-standing objects and ensures a stable indoor climate in the rooms. Already in 1724 the rooms of the Green Vault were open to the public for an exclusive audience - aulthough only in small groups and, according to the king's request, with clean clothes
The names of the individual rooms testify to the value of the objects on display: from the Amber Cabinet (Bernsteinkabinett), to the neighboring Ivory Room (Elfenbeinzimmer) and the White Silver Room (Weißsilberzimmer) and the Silver Gilded Room (Silbervergoldete Zimmer). The Pretiosensaal then extends over more than 200 square meters, in which, in addition to the gold-plated vessels made of precious stones and precious natural objects such as ostrich eggs and rock crystals, hang the portraits of the Electors of Saxony, who once acquired these treasures. .
