Moritzburg Palace and Little Pheasant Castle

Baroque gem and famous place for Czech film

The hunting lodge and pleasure palace of Augustus the Strong is picturesquely situated on an island in the midst of a unique cultural landscape just outside of Dresden. Even today it contains valuable leather wallpaper, furniture, porcelain, hunting trophies and the legendary "Moritzburger Federzimmer" - a work of art made of more than 1 million colored feathers.

The castle also became famous as a film set for the cult fairy tale »Three Hazelnuts for Cinderella«. A very popular exhibition of the same name is being held regularly in winter.

The enchanting little pheasant castle is just a romantic walk away from the castle. It is probably the smallest royal castle in Saxony and still offers space for a court "en miniature". Nearby is Saxony's only maritime lighthouse, which served as a backdrop for pleasure trips across the castle pond.
