Dear visitor to the exhibition,

many thousands of guests visit the tow Moritzburg castles every year. In order to preserve this cultural treasure, certain limitations apply to visiting our museums:

Unfortunately, pushchairs or baby buggies are not allowed in our exhibition rooms. An exception applies to wheelchair users. See here for further notes on accessibility.

For preservatory reasons – especially for protecting the precious leather tapestries – TAKING PHOTOGRAPHS in the Baroque Exhibition is not allowed. However, in our winter exhibition »THREE HAZELNUTS FOR CINDERELLA« will be permitted again as in previous years. And not only this – the photo permit will be for FREE for this year’s winter exhibition.

Thanks for your understanding.
