A Baroque castle, Schloss Moritzburg served as a hunting lodge to Saxony's Elector Frederick Augustus I in the 18th century. Explore inside for a sense of the splendor of Saxon court life. Admire the collection of carriages on display in the entrance hall, as well as the opulent decor of several open rooms. Many of the furnishings are themed around hunting, such as a room covered in antlers and a feather room. Fans of the "Three Nuts for Cinderella" movie may recognize the castle as the setting for some of its scenes. Guided tours and audio guides are available.

Ce château est plaisant à regarder et il est surtout magnifiquement mis en valeur par l'immense lac qui l'entoure (ses reflets sur l'eau ravissent les photographes).

Having heard that there is lack of interest, I went and did the different paths in the surroundings of the castle: the waterfront, in the forest and until small game reserve to a kilometre away. A very good time.

As in the cult film. To currently was the Aschenbrödel-exhibition is a must for any fan. But the place itself is very nice. Especially the carriages fit to do so.

After visit pilmitz palace, it looks little bit wilder and smaller than Pilmitz. However, it is also good. But it does not have great garden as Pilmitz does. You can find great thing in the mountain b... more »
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.
