Historic Sites
Wermsdorf is a municipality in the North Saxony district in Saxony, Germany. Two hunting castles of the Saxon Dukes and Kings are to be found here.GeographyNeighboring DistrictsLandscapeWermsdorf is situated within Wermsdorf Forest a wooded area of some 30 km/sq, less than 7.0 km to the north-west of Mügeln. The south side of Wermsdorf is deforested and looks out over a fairly flat landscape (being at the southerly end of the North German Plain) of agricultural land set out in crops. There are a number of man-made lakes suitable for recreation in the vicinity. A quarry lies to the north-east of Wermsdorf.SightsThere are well maintained historical buildings to go visit, some of which have been refurbished in the last few years. The most prominent is Hubertusburg, which, in spite of its more modest size, and bereft of the grand sweep of terraces-cum-steps of Sanssouci in Potsdam, does have a recognizably similar layout to Sanssouci, with the main building overlooking formal gardens, graveled walkways, outbuildings and a wooded area.HistoryNothing is known about the 638 ha large Waldhufendorf settlement as seat of Henricus de Weenboldisdorf mentioned in a document dating from 1206. The first documented mention of Wermsdorf was in 1215. Additional early mentions include: 1241 as Burchardus de Werenboldestorp 1282 as Wermoldesdorf 1403 as Wermelsdorf 1440 as WermesdorffIn 1350 the place was recognised as an oppidum for the first time.
