  • 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.
