Taschenbergpalais is a grand hotel in Dresden, Germany. It is located near Dresden Castle and Zwinger.

History[edit]

The building was built from 1705 to 1708 by Johann Friedrich Karcher as a palace for countess Anna Constanze von Hoym. It was destroyed in 1945 during World War II, and was rebuilt from 1992–95. It was essentially rebuilt from scratch, and the reconstruction cost 127.8 million euro. On March 31, 1995, the hotel was opened by the five-star hotel chain Kempinski. It was the first five-star hotel in Saxony.[citation needed]
