Moritzburg Castle is an impressive baroque castle, which reminds us of the glorious times of August the Strong. The building is one of the most beautiful moated castles in Europe.
Just outside of Dresden, on an island, lies the former hunting and pleasure palace of August the Strong. Inside this architectural masterpiece, magnificent furniture, paintings, porcelain and precious leather wallpaper still bear witness to the courtly living and festive culture of the 18th century. It also houses one of the most important collections of hunting trophies, the impressive Catholic palace chapel, the world-famous Federzimmer and, since 2016, a new "treasure chamber" with parts of the Moritzburg sensational find from 1996/98. The palace served as the backdrop for the popular fairy tale film "Three hazelnuts for Cinderella".
Always in the cold season, the exhibition "Three Hazelnuts for Cinderella" gives visitors the opportunity to follow in the footsteps of the cheeky fairytale princess and learn more about the history of the fairytale film
With the baroque exhibition, visitors are immersed in the magnificent backdrop of the baroque
