Lipsiusbau Exhibition Hall

Around 1890, a magnificent art house was built between the Frauenkirche and the Brühl’s Terrace, which with its glass dome, also known as the “lemon squeezer,” occupies a prominent position in the Dresden skyline. The building, known as the Lipsius-Bau after its builder Constantin Lipsius, housed not only the Art Academy but also the exhibition building of the Saxon Art Society, whose entrance facade resembles a Greek temple. After partial destruction in 1945, the exhibition building remained unused for a long time until reconstruction began in the 1990s. The main hall and adjacent cabinets were put back into operation in October 2005 with the exhibition “The View of Dresden.” Today, the Lipsiusbau Art Hall mainly presents special exhibitions of contemporary art.
