Enchanting place with a castle and a Falconer's fountain.

The leisure offer is complemented by the riding stables, the outdoor swimming pool with a wonderful sunbathing lawn, diverse leisure activities. 
In the Müglitztal, the most beautiful valley in Saxony, as King Johann of Saxony once called it, is Lauenstein, which has been part of Altenberg region since 2011. At a medium altitude (470 - 710 m), protected from rough winds by mountains and forests, the place still shows the character of a castle town. The almost square market is striking.The town is adjoining the palace buildings. Remnants of the old city walls are still good to seen. The town's landmark is the Falconer's fountain. The local library has a wide offer ready for you. Various clubs and organizations ensure that many cultural and sporting events are going on in the town.
