The architecture is amazing. There are a couple small people on outside to represent screw you according to guide. Inside is much different than you would figure from outside.

We loved our trip to the castle. We highly recommend going into both the Church and the castle, and paying for the recorded tour. Both are amazing considering the relatively small size of the town, I guess. But this is a great place to visit.

The architecture in this castle was amazing, The cathedral ceilings were breathtaking and incredible the engineering knowledge on structure and loads existed that long ago, The rooms are pretty open without much art collection or artifacts.

Train from Berlin Hbf to Meissen takes about 3 and a half hours. Trains seem to be every half hour, best to choose one with only one change (usually at Dresden). Cheapest tickets are bought in advance for a specific train... More
