Dear Visitors,
we are delighted to welcome you at the Staatliche Kunstsammlungen Dresden. In order to do justice to all of our visitors and their interests and to guarantee the safety of the artworks, certain rules are imperative. The rules of the house are binding for all visitors. By entering the museum building, the visitors acknowledge the validity of these rules. 

To the visitor regulations

Taking photographs and Filming without flash, tripod or selfie-stick – for exclusively private, non-commercial purposes – is permitted in the permanent exhibitions (except in the Historic Green Vault (Historisches Grünes Gewölbe)), provided the safety and security of the works of art are not endangered, a minimum distance of 50 centimetres is complied with, and other visitors
are treated with consideration.

This permit shall not apply to third party rights. The SKD explicitly point out that the reproduction or dissemination of content that is protected under copyright or rights of privacy is subject to authorisation. Individual works which are subject to a general prohibition on photography or filming owing to the instructions of the owner or copyright holder are labelled accordingly. In special exhibitions, photography and filming may be prohibited; please do not hesitate to ask the museum attendants about this. For all purposes that go beyond the scope of this general permit, written authorisation is necessary; this also applies to later changes of use.
