Dominant in the “new city” is the Japanese Palace, which was built by Augustus the Strong and designed by the architect Pöppelmann. The palace was created by rebuilding the “Dutch Palace” during the period 1727-1737. The Japanese feeling is immediately evident when first looking at the roof of the Japanese Palace.
The building serves as a museum of porcelain and a large library.
The palace is located at the end of King Street.
