  • Come here, having read the rave reviews of tourists and ... a complete bummer. The castle is closed until March 20-preparing for the new season. So I had to screw the lip and just walk around the Castle and the Park. Beautiful, especially pleased with a couple of swans, we watched a fight for samochku males. And then the winner of the "vygulival" girlfriend tenderly, with which they played "serechki", craning her neck. Sometimes such!

  • The Castle Moritzburg was built to be a hunting Castle, dating back to a 16th-century hunting lodge, received your current form 18 century under Augustus the Strong ". The surroundings have free access, being paid only the access to the Museum. There is a small restaurant and souvenir shops and restrooms (paid). Beautiful! Worth the ride.

  • Th drive from Dresden to the Castle was stunning; how very beautiful this part of the country is. We took a tiny road that wound through tidy towns, humble cabins along a small lake, and through wooded bogs before we reached the town of Moritzburg. I think the locals know how lucky they are to live here.....oh yeah, the Castle is neat too.
  • A beautiful place. The lake around castle brought more beauty to the castle. Best place to visit with friends and family.
  • An amazing hunting lodge. We did not go in, as it was nice weather and we wanted to walk outside. Make sure you visit.
  • Outward the Castle is stunning. Do visit inside... U will find paintings etc. Just visit... u will be surprised.
  • The building is located in a stunning place; about the inside of the castle, however, you cannot find what might be expected. Also it is not advisable during the cold period of the year.
