Mildenstein Castle

A symbol of power in stone

The massive walls that have risen above the valley of the Freiberger Mulde for 1,000 years can already be seen from afar - on steeply sloping rocks. The family-friendly permanent exhibition on the history of the castle is a treat for both big and small castle fans. Chubby little "Frieder Berg" tower accompanies children on a journey through the exhibition and tells them exciting stories and castle secrets at the touch of a button. For children who are keen to experiment, there is a wall puzzle and a wooden castle model for self-exploration. Numerous events, such as concerts, familyfriendly discovery tours and the "Ferienspaß für Königskinder" invite you to discover the castle walls.
