Tips

  • Explorer

    The hunting lodge Augustusburg was built from 1568 to 1572 on the Schellenberg 516 m above sea level by Elector August of Saxony about 16 km east of Chemnitz.
    The altar of the castle chapel was painted by Lucas Cranach the Younger.
    The well is 130,6 m the second deepest well of Saxony after the fortress Königstein.

    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.

    Absolutely beautifully restored castle. With far-sightedness of the country. The well house is insane, even the dungeon. Absolutely descend and watch

    Linden tree planted in 1421. The legend claims that everything was planted upside down, i.e. the branches in the ground and the roots upwards.

    Planted in 1421 under Frederick the Arguable. It is said that it was planted upside down. Well, we can't ask Friedrich any more. ;-)

    Well-preserved castle, in which several exhibitions, some of which change, can be seen. Unfortunately, falconry no longer exists, which was also a highlight.

    The choice of the location where the Saxon Elector August had the castle built between 1568 and 1572 is special. On a 516 meter high cone made of quartz porphyry, the hunting and pleasure palace rises visibly above the Zschopau valley. Because of this imposing location, Augustusburg Castle is called the Crown of the Ore Mountains. And it also looks a bit like a crown: Four square corner houses and intermediate buildings mark the hilltop. Inside, they reveal the imposing inner courtyard of a renaissance castle.
