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.
