Schloss Rochsburg, Lunzenau

(a few reviews on the web)
Castle
Rochsburg Castle, which was probably founded in the late 12th century, stands on a rock spur, surrounded on three sides by the Zwickau Mulde river, above the eponymous town quarter in Lunzenau in Saxony. The medieval site and its division into the inner bailey, outer bailey and two zwingers is still easy to recognise. In its present appearance the schloss dates, however, to the Late Gothic and Renaissance periods. Its main construction phases date to 1470 and 1548; it is an important example of Renaissance architecture in Saxony. Over centuries the Rochsburg has formed the centrepiece in the Saxon district of Rochsburg.

  • The Rochsburg is nicely situated and from the parking lot to reach in two minutes. You should have some time to visit the Castle and of the existing Museum. The design of the rooms is very informative and for history. Also you should look at something nearer the fountain in the courtyard.

  • Have this unique Castle witnessed facility as a small child. And more often in GDR times to visit have been dar she looked not so good as it is today. A thank you to the many hands and the architects who fully brought the miracle to bring the Rochsburg vorderman. And a small salute to the little princess in the castle chapel. As primal Saxon family it was happy that one so what is beautiful, and no trust has destroyed everything. She survived that they wanted to destroy complete also the Russians.

  • A very beautiful castle. The present Tower tour was very interesting and gave a good view from the top. A visit is recommended in any case!

  • Lovely small castle, cheap ticket prices. Because the castle is somewhat smaller, it is suitable no trip for the entire day, but in connection with other tourist attractions. During the holidays or on certain holidays with program. The coffee with homemade cakes is recommended.
