10 Courthouse at Palace Square in Dresden, Germany

Backtrack in front of the cathedral toward the Procession of Princes Mural (right) you admired earlier. This is Schloßplatz. Palace Square became the center of Old Town staring in the 15th century. These people are walking in front of the former Sächsische Ständehaus. The Saxon House of Estates was built in 1907 to house the Landtag of the Free State of Saxony. After the Parliament of Saxony moved out in 1933, this became a museum. Since an extensive renovation in the late 1990s, it was renamed Oberlandesgericht. Inside is the Higher Regional Court of Dresden, the equivalent of the Saxony’s Supreme Court. The bronze monument is a tribute to Frederick Augustus I. He was the last Elector of Saxony (1763 – 1806) and then crowned the first king of the Independent Kingdom of Saxony (1806 – 1827).
