    The lighthouse in Moritzburg is an inland lighthouse in Saxony. The staffage building (Folly) was built in the late 18th century as part of a backdrop for trailing naval battles (Naumachie). He is the only lighthouse built in Germany for this purpose and at the same time one of the oldest internal lighthouses in the Federal Republic.

    Not far away from Moritzburg Castle is this beautiful little lighthouse. Nearby you can visit a small café and enjoy coffee and cake in a great atmosphere. Definitely worth a visit - even in the cold season. Then it is not so crowded.

    Worth to look at it! Unfortunately at the time I was there (Saturday noon) you could not enter the tower. Through the gate you can see a blackboard with the interesting history of the tower. Take a look at it!

    Very idyllic. There you can spend some time and enjoy the view over the lake. Unfortunately you could not enter the tower when I was there. But if you look through the door made of lattice you can see on the wall a geschichtstafel. Reading is worthwhile!

    Saxony's only lighthouse.
    There used to be more artificial rounds with loopholes.
    These replicas were used for performances of naval battles.

    Nice little lighthouse, which does well on a selfie ;-)
    Before the way to the tree is a good point for it. Nearby is a small restaurant.
