  • We were at the castle in winter, and have stayed at a beautiful exhibition of the movie three nuts for Cinderella. We were carried away by the beautiful surroundings of the Castle, a beautiful park, and I'm sure we'll be back here in the summer on the overall tour. Also we praise excellent castle restaurant and attentive service. The quality of the food, we were excited!

  • 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.
