Dresden Altstadt "old town"
The splendid residence of the Saxon electors and kings will enchant you with art, architecture, culture and night life.discover
Moritzburg, the elector’s hunting lodge in a small town of the same name, is only 25 minutes by car from Hotel am Blauen Wunder. Buses also run - please ask reception for the best connection.
The woodlands and lakes around the small town of Moritzburg were a favorite hunting area of the electors and kings of Saxony, and what began as a hunting lodge was expanded into an impressive Baroque palace in the 18th century, complete with artificial lake, formal gardens, exotic interiors and one of the world’s most important collections of deer antlers.
The fairy tale adaptation ‘Three Gifts for Cinderella’ – a staple Christmas movie in most German families – was filmed here in 1973, and an exhibition of the original sets and costumes draws large numbers of visitors every winter. In the summer months, Moritzburg hosts a string of festive events and weddings.
