    Saxon hunting and pleasure palace Augustus the Strong, which nowadays houses a motorbike museum, a hunting and ornithological museum and a carriage museum. A youth hostel is also located in the old walls. Due to its proximity to Chemnitz, the castle is therefore also ideally suited as a central starting point for exploring the city and the Ore Mountains.
