As we were on a trip off a river cruise on the Elbe we did not enter (not sure if one could) but the history given to us when outside was worth hearing.

We have visited quite some castle, but this was a special experience. The castle is enormous, has a rich history and is very nicely restored. Count about 2 h if you want to see it all. Tip: buy a combination ticket with the Porzellan Manufaktur.

The building is certainly imposing from the outside. When you enter it, you realize that there is almost nothing artistic to exhibit. There are some awful recent wall paintings which mock medieval art --a quite depressing view indeed. There are panels, photographs, models, scissors, axes,...More

Castle is worth visiting when staying in the region. Paid parking nearby, just need to climb up the stairs or take the elevator. Castle visit can be combined with visit of historic Meissen.
