  • The Moritzburg is to reach within half an hour by bus from the train station Dresden-Neustadt. On a replica shoes is to find not much of the Cinderella film adaptation. Still worth a visit, in particular, if you can take a guided tour. During the visit, it was learned much of life in the Castle, whose residents and characteristics - through the many small stories, the leadership was very entertaining.

  • A must if you are in the vicinity of Dresden. It was worth an hour to wait for the next lead. We will join the Sunday tour of the cellar to the roof in any case at the earliest opportunity!

  • The Moritzburg is always a trip. Unfortunately, the weather was not so great. But even in wind and drizzle can very nice stroll and marvel at the magnificent facility. The area is very spacious and suitable for wheelchair users. In the castle is a museum as well as a café.

  • 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.
