Idyllic fountains in the heart of the city
Of course, the Zwinger has to form part of every city tour. Many tourists also choose to listen to the glockenspiel, visit the Old Masters Gallery or perhaps explore the Technical Museum. But only few people check out the romantic Nymphenbad behind the French Pavilion of the Zwinger. It is one of the most beautiful baroque fountains. If you visit the Zwinger, a side trip to the Nymphenbad is an absolute must.
