Schloss Rochsburg, Lunzenau

4.5
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.

  • Always a trip worth exhibitions constantly changing beautiful grounds, beautiful castle with many Retaurierten areas, history object

  • The castle is an interesting place to look at the history of castle building and the various security devices. Inside the castle is a rich and lovingly furnished Museum which is well worth a visit. For groups, particularly previously bookable special guided tours offer.

  • The grounds and courtyards of the Castle, which structurally is actually a castle were particularly impressive for me. Visit - very beautiful courtyards and interesting exhibition about the clothing of the past centuries.

  • Very nice Castle, scenic location. Prices are alright, to changing events. In the courtyard there is a small but very fine chocolate Manufactory - tip!

  • We were slightly disappointed by the trip. The parking lot you can safely save for those big city prices and prefer slightly further away can park his car, so one can get a little look at the environment, for example the bridge. By the castle itself, one is through in an hour without rushing. The Guide are rar, many of which are listed on the Loveless bullet points, or absent. And it leaves out the room with all of the stories, leaving the Castle faster. The staff was very friendly and cheap admission. The only us did what in memory, factory that actually has nothing to do with the castle is the chocolate. Perhaps a guide would make something more interesting the whole. In comparison to other fortresses/castles in the area, we found this here little boring staged. The castle itself was still nice to look at and certainly some interesting events. We just expected more.
