Welcome to Moritzburg Castle

Close to Dresden, there is the unique Cultural Landscape of Moritzburg with Moritzburg Castle and the Little Pheasant Castle at its heart. Moritzburg has become famous for its horse breeding and carp farming as well as through the activities of artist Kaethe Kollwitz. In winter 1972/1973, the Baroque castle was the festive backdrop for »Three Hazelnuts for Cinderella« – one of the most popular German fairy-tale movies.

»Three hazelnuts for Cinderella« Cinderella is coming back to Moritzburg Castle!

From November 12, 2016, the exhibition on the popular German-Czech winter fairytale is back at Moritzburg Castle.
