Pöppelmann was born in Herford in Westphalia on 3 May 1662 the son of a shopkeeper.

In 1680, he began working on an unpaid basis as a building designer in the court of Dresden Castle.

As court architect for the King of Poland and Elector of Saxony, Augustus II the Strong, he designed the grandiose Zwinger palace in Dresden.[1] He was also in charge of major works at Dresden Castle, Pillnitz Castle and he designed the Vineyard Church (Weinbergkirche) in Pillnitz. Pöppelmann, together with Johann Christoph Naumann, developed an urban plan for a portion of the city of Warsaw, Poland, which was only partially realized, including the Saxon Axis and other important streetscapes.[citation needed]

He died in Dresden on 17 January 1736. He is buried in the Matthauskirche in Dresden.

He was the grandfather of the famous actress Friederike Sophie Seyler.[2]
