    Why Go There?

    28 Mar-3 Nov Daily 10:00 a.m.-05:30 p.m.

    Located in the middle of the Cultural Landscape of Moritzburg, about 15 km from Dresden, are the Baroque Moritzburg Castle which compound surrounded by a pond attracts thousands of visitors every year.

    Augustus the Strong, King of Poland and Elector of Saxony, had the representative hunting and pleasure lodge built on the walls of the former Renaissance building just outside Dresden’s gates. Not only the porcelain figurine collection of Augustus the Strong, but also the sumptuously painted and ornamented leather wallpapers represent part of Saxon history. A round walk of the castle in summer provides insight into the life at court then.

    The castle was converted in winter 1972/73 into a fairy-tale backdrop for the Czech-German coproduction of »Three Hazelnuts for Cinderella«. Nobody would have thought then that this movie would ever advance to become the most popular German fair-tale film. Meanwhile, this film itself has become part of the history of Moritzburg Castle.
