Design elements of the royal Palais

The Taschenbergpalais in new, royal charm.

The transformation

Used for centuries by the Saxon royal family, the palace fell into disrepair for a time and fully blossomed again in the mid-1990s as the first luxury hotel in the free state of Saxony. Hotel Taschenbergpalais Kempinski Dresden has been undergoing intensive renovation since the beginning of 2023. After almost 30 years of welcoming national and international personalities, the hotel is now continuing its history. 


Inspired by Saxon baroque architecture

Designer Markus Hilzinger, who is now based in Berlin, has used landmarks such as the Dresden Zwinger or the Residenzschloss as inspiration to create a special experience for the future hotel guests. An experience that does justice to the legacy of Augustus the Strong and his descendants as well as Saxon history, but at the same time meets the requirements of a modern luxury hotel.

Look forward to discovering unique impressions of the new design of the Taschenbergpalais.


Three worlds of colour

An ambience full of variety. Experience three different worlds of colour in our new rooms & suites, which are essentially determined by one historical main colour. In addition, the highest quality materials were used with craftsmanship and custom-made furniture and fabrics were integrated.

Historical blue

Sage green

Sandstone beige

Wall covering

Each of the three designs has its own wall design, which essentially influences the mood of the room. Clear, structuring, invigorating, artistic or geometrically ordered.

Lighting concept

A balanced lighting concept planned down to the finest detail, with atmospheric accents, gives the spacious rooms a harmonious, sophisticated and glamorous appearance. Different setting options provide the right ambience at any time of day or night. 


High quality materials

In all areas of the Taschenbergpalais, high-quality and sustainable materials and building products have been used. The allergy-friendly construction also sets a benchmark in order to meet today's and future requirements of a luxury hotel.

Signature Suiten

The Hotel Taschenbergpalais Kempinski Dresden is also adorned with four individually designed Signature Suites. Each of these suites stands on its own and offers guests a unique living experience. 

One of these suites was created especially for a bride and groom and serves as a wedding suite. In addition to the design, the exclusive features are impressive.

Royal Suite

The Royal Suite has been equipped with numerous amenities and design elements that will amaze guests. Part of the wall panelling features artwork by the French studio Hector. In France, these were painted by hand on linen, using natural pigments and finished with gold leaf. Inspired by classical, artistic iconography, portraits of the Countess of Cosel were made in the Art Deco style.

Lobby & Patisserie

In the lobby, which is more spacious than previously, and in the new patisserie and café lounge, guests can find both the course of the Elbe and noble design elements. A warm sandstone floor and earthy colours set the tone, but are broken up by eye-catching crane wallpaper embroidered on a cotton and linen fabric.
