In Moritzburg, just on the outskirts of the City of Dresden, you will find a unique combination of cultural and historical monuments in the heart of its idyllic nature. Moritzburg is widely famous for its hunting and pleasure residence, with its accomplished baroque architecture right in the center of its ponds. Moritzburg is also well-known for its extensive forests, where even former Saxon Electors and Kings went on seasonal hunting excursions. Likewise, you can find Germany's oldest interior light house, the Little Pheasant Castle with its beautiful Rococo style, the Saxon Stud and a game reserve that is renowned for the care and preservation of its wild animals. Today, the town Moritzburg is a traditional but also modern tourist attraction with many interesting features for horse enthusiasts, lovers of the outdoors as well as cultural heritage enthusiasts and certainly nature lovers. As in the days of August the Strong, King of Poland and Elector of Saxony, folks still come to Moritzburg celebrating various festivals. Each year, the traditional stallion parade, the fish and forest festival as well as numerous other events, attract thousands of visitors. We would like to invite you to discover, experience and enjoy this unique combination of historic buildings and idyllic countryside.
