Bike Touring Highlight
A paradise in a nutshell Baroque in the middle of nature: The Moritzburg hunting and pleasure palace is only about 20 kilometers from Dresden. August the Strong had it built on the walls of a former Renaissance building. With a feather room, leather wallpaper and little pheasant castle, it stands for opulent court life.

Moritzburg Castle is located in the Moritzburg municipality of the same name near Dresden. The hunting lodge, which dates back to a hunting lodge from the 16th century, was given its current appearance in the 18th century under August the Strong.
The castle, whose main axis runs from south to north, rises on an artificial island in the castle pond. The baroque four-wing building with its four towers directly connected to the main building rests on a pedestal-like base. Eight former guard houses are grouped around the castle on the island.
The harmonious integration of the landscape into the castle is completed by the gardens to the north, the pheasant castle about two kilometers to the east and connected by a direct line of sight with a small port facility and the Venus fountain, the Dardanelles and a lighthouse in the center of the Schneisenstern in the northern Friedewald.
