  • Location! Top notch! From a distance, really looks as if floating on the water, when you reach closer to come to the island a little dignity disappears, but is still interesting though according to me a little bit smooth, almost no decoration. Fall into the worth, especially coming here by bike from Dresden, the route is really attractive!

  • A very beautiful castle, which you can see in all its glory when it comes along the road. There is ample parking space. The area is big and beautiful. Perfect for a winter walk. Liked us very well.

  • Definitely one of the most beautiful places around Dresden, including the areas around the castle. Well worth a visit. Drei Haselnuesse fuer Aschenputtel »Three Hazelnuts for Cinderella« – one of the most popular German fairy-tale movies was shot here. Very close to Dresden. It is the unique cultural landscape of Moritzburg with Moritzburg Castle and the Little Pheasant Castle at its heart. Moritzburg has become famous for its horse breeding and carp farming.
