Pulverturm Dresdenone of the most beautiful vault restaurants of Dresden.
Welcome to the Gunpowder Tower!
Originally built in 1565, the tower formed an important part of Dresden’s fortifications, and, as its name suggests, was used to store gunpowder safely in the ground – it was a pretty explosive place back then! You will find the restaurant in the historical centre of dresden in the vaulted ceilings of the Coselpalais next to Frauenkirche.
The Pulverturm, with a total of 400 seats, is open daily from 11 a.m. to 1 a.m. As you dine beneath the vaulted ceilings of the Marshal de Saxe Room, or the Russian or Turkish vault, you will experience a part of the history of Saxony while enjoying a truly royal saxon dining experience. Of course, your table will have a sumptious basket of oven-fresh breads from the Arsenal Bakery, just a few feets away. The bakery is also where the court patissier creates sweet delicacies for dessert.
Perhaps Milord and Milady would fancy a juicy suckling pig or other rustic dishes prepared before your eyes in our open-air kitchen, along with your choice of ice-cold german beer or delicious local wines. You may even be tempted to purchase some plunder from the strolling sutler!
The "Condemned Man’s Last Meal" served in the dungeon, of course, is an unforgettable experience. Our lovely maidens and brave grenadiers will serve you delights. Throughout the evening, strolling magicians will ensure nonstop merriment and diversion. Last but not least you should not miss out on the famous funnel drinking, called "Dresdner Trichtertrinken".

What a find!
On our recent visit to Dresden, on the way back to Berlin, we found this gem of a restaurant. It is situated right next to the Frauenkirche. The menu gave plenty of choice and it was difficult to choose. All dishes were described in English, which was helpful. Good, solid, fresh and tasty German cuisine with a twist. The service was excellent as well. A great end to our holiday.MelnNige, UK - Tripadvisor
