Moritzburg Overview

Moritzburg is a very small village which was famous for the castle.

Schloss Moritzburg is a Baroque German castle in the small town of Moritzburg in the German state of Saxony. It was built from 1542–1546 as a hunting lodge for Duke Moritz of Saxony. The chapel was added between 1661 and 1671 after designs by Wolf Caspar von Klengels and is a fine example of the early Baroque style.

Between 1723 and 1733, the castle was remodeled as a pleasure seat with Formal Park for Augustus II the Strong, elector of Saxony and king of Poland by the architects Matthäus Daniel Pöppelmann and Longeloune
