About us

More than a thousand palaces, castles and gardens all across Saxony are evidence to its long and proud history.

The »State Palaces, Castles and Gardens of Saxony, non profit« market, manage and present nineteen of the most interesting heritage buildings. According to our guiding principles our company stands for the preservation of this heritage and the presentation of these historic buildings.

The non profit organization works under a statute. In this statute we obligate ourselves to serve the purpose of care, preservation, management and impartation of the palaces, castles and gardens conveyed to us by the Free State of Saxony. Accordingly, our employees create and implement concepts for museums, exhibitions, museum educational guided tours or programs. They take care of appropriate advertising and marketing of the on site offers. They ensure monument preservation, garden maintenance and the proper organizational and accounting procedure of the company. One hundred percent of »State Palaces, Castles and Gardens of Saxony, non profit« are owned by the Free State of Saxony. The non profit organization was established on 01.01.2013. While each object is committed locally the head office takes overarching and supra-regional responsibility. We closely cooperate with the state non profit organization »Augustusburg/Scharfenstein/Lichtenwalde«. Together with the Tourismus Marketing Gesellschaft Saxony (TMGS) we have, since 2005, been building a supra-regional advertising cooperation. This cooperation consists, besides the state houses, of over twenty non state palaces, castles, gardens, monasteries and castle hotels. They all work hand in hand.
Together, we are Schloesserland Sachsen. Preserve and revive – this is our task.
