Short facts

Kriebstein Castle - Saxony's Most Beautiful Knight's Castle

The medieval castle is located in the centre of the three cities Dresden, Chemnitz and Leipzig. The most beautiful knight's castle of Saxony, a closed, completely preserved building complex from the late Gothic era, rises on a steep rock above the Zschopau river.

Highlights include a visit to the monumental residential tower from the deepest cellar to the historically preserved attic storeys, the castle chapel with valuable paintings from around 1410, the Kriebsteinzimmer, the furnished interiors of the Arnim family and the Burgbrunnen.
