Come and discover the beautiful Barockschloss Delitzsch, learn about the history in the museum, stroll through the baroque garden.
Built in the 14th century, the medieval moated castle always served as a holiday residence for Saxon rulers and as accommodation for the sovereign's administration. When the castle was rebuilt for the first time, it retained its Renaissance style, and the tower has survived to this day. Following the division of Saxony and the takeover of the Saxony-Merseburg Principality, the Barockschloss Delitzsch was declared a travel and widows' residence.
Further reconstruction gave the castle its French character and still impresses today with its elegant interior. Then, starting in 1860, the residence was used as a women's prison for a few years until the city of Delitzsch bought the castle and it became a museum.
The baroque palace with its baroque garden is now home to a museum, the tourist information office, the registry office and the local music school. The 50-metre high observation tower also offers a 360-degree view of the surrounding area.

Information about the castle's history and the town is also available and there are also special exhibitions that highlight the political and cultural history.
Baroque garden – come take a stroll
Originally laid out in 1692 and 1693, the French-style pleasure garden today again has a "parterre de broderie" which, with its brick-filled ornaments, is reminiscent of embroidery. The fan-shaped avenues lined with maple trees are a welcome source of shade in summer.
