  • We were on a Sunday, 30.7.17, and booked the lead in advance "by basement up to the roof". (13:00, 12.50 euro, 1.5-2 hrs) It was exciting and informative. We saw places that otherwise not seen. Even the museum can be viewed with this ticket. It was a nice gentleman who peppered with humor carried out the leadership. Especially from the outside is the Castle very photogenic. You can shoot a really very beautiful pictures! Very much recommended. Moritzburg is a place next to dresden. Parking costs 7 am day. Bekannr was closed mainly because part of the film "Cinderella" was shot. On the stairs where Cinderella the shoe was lost, as well a shoe sat down. It has a restaurant in the Castle, the homemade iced tea is awesome! In the shop are Cinderella article and other at fair prices offered.

  • Real fairy tail castle. Peace and quiet in small Germany town with good atmosphere. Near the Dresden. Good to visit in bike tour.
  • Stunning old hunting lodge with large grounds great for walking and biking.
  • Been here three times. The usual exhibition is quite interesting, but wouldn't suggest to visit with kids. The winter exhibition about Cinderella however is totally suitable for children older than 6. A lot of the activities/games require reading, so it's better for children of school age. Expect a lot of visitors during holiday time, plan some extra time for queuing and the crammed rooms can get exhausting. The castle itself is beautiful in every season. Definitely recommend!
  • A beautiful old palace, open garden and now nice place to walk around
  • Offers a detailed exhibition of the play, "three hazelnuts and Cinderella". I believe that's what it was called. The staff allow you to get the whole feel of the place, and replica costumes are on display for show. A slightly interactive tour lets you acquire a bit of history surrounding the place.
