Many visitors in Dresden manage to hear about and visit Schloss Pillnitz, a charming chinoserie style Palace set in a vast landscaped garden. Another reason to go there this summer is an exhibition named ” Imprisoned, Suffered, Celebrated” about the Saxon King Frederick August the First of Saxon, also called Fredrick August the Just. The exhibition marks the 200th anniversary of his release from political imprisonment of two years and his return home . The celebrations that accompanied his return from Prussia in July 2015 were a significant display of respect towards him by his people, and the colors white and green were worn to welcome him. These then became the colors of Saxony.
The exhibition is in the Palace Museum of the New Palace and will be on from 22. May 2015 – 1. November 2015
