Kössern Hunting Lodge
RegioCard

Baroque gem in the Muldental

© W. Siesing

The hunting lodge built in the style of a large mansion around 1709 - often referred to as a hunting lodge - is considered an outstanding gem of Baroque architecture in the Muldental. Its architect was Matthäus Daniel Pöppelmann, chief court hunting master and eldest minister in the cabinet of the Saxon Elector Friedrich August I and later King of Poland August II - known as "August the Strong".

The high mansard roof greets visitors from afar. The tightly structured, richly painted façade demonstrates perfect harmony. The foyer on the ground floor was supported on both sides by four strong pillars to allow a view of the Great Garden. An original, spacious staircase leads to the upper floor with a surprisingly stately ballroom crowned by lush stucco and a large ceiling fresco. 

Guided tours of historic costumes, concerts, events and wedding venues are offered today. In addition, in the Jagdhaus zu Kössern, which is located directly on the Mulde bike trail, there is a tourist information point (branch office of the city information Grimma).
