  • Even from the outside, Schloß Moritzburg impressed me again and again... With my just acquired castles annual pass for €40.00 I visit the winter exhibition "Three hazelnuts for Cinderella"... The exhibition is well done and I can understand why it pulls especially many women and children in the winter to Moritzburg castle...

  • The final deception was because when it became clear with time ticket you have not the advantage that a relaxed look at the exhibition is possible. The exhibition is to space, which people need to push themselves mutually. It is obviously important to earn so much money with it. Too bad, you could make more!

  • Quite nice. Some interiors are hardly accessible as large crowds are shuffling through. Many behind the scenes and interesting facts about making of the Czech-German Cinderella tale. 2 hours are not nearly enough.
  • Fancy looking place from a famous Czech/German fairy tale. Looks great even in winter. We haven't been inside though, because of the hilarious queue.
  • A nice, charming castle (palace, really) with all the romantic attractions included. On one of the stairs you'll find Cinderella's shoe (cast in bronze) and it features horse cart rides. Very pretty but a bit of a tourist trap. You see, I came here for the first time during the /wild times/, just after the wall fell. Most people serving in the restaurant were at that time still in their nappies. I prefer to remember that visit.
  • Like most other castles, this castle also reveals the opulent life style of the people who lived there. However, it's debatable whether or not they led happy lives. What a contrast, the day we visited the castle, there was a wedding taking place and what better place for a couple, beginning a life together, to be unified in such a lavish castle. Even the chapel, there are inscriptions in Hebrew high up on the walls, which make you wonder. Again, like most other castles, a large number of rooms are not open to the public. The lawns are immaculately maintained and the lake all around enhances the effect. By all means, visit the castle.
  • Nice place with a near by parking (not free)
