The origin of Dresden's Royal Palace (Residenzschloss) goes back to the 13th century when a fort was built here. The fort was first expanded in the early 15th century. That's when the Hausmann Tower was built.
Like all landmarks in Dresden, the Royal Palace was destroyed in 1945. For more than 40 years the building stood in ruins. Reconstruction started in 1985 - mostly completed in 2006.
Today the Hausmannsturm (Housemann Tower) holds the Münzcabinet (Coin Cabinet) exhibits.
