Frohburg Castle

Around 1200, there stood a Romanesque castle in Frohburg. Over the centuries, the masonry has been preseved to a large extent forming today's castle building, that attracts both art lovers and toy fans. 

In 1910, when Kurt Feuerriegel founded the »Workshop of Saxon Handicraft Potteries« in Frohburg, the little town developed into a center of ambitious ceramic production of great renown throughout Germany and pottery, being deep-rooted in Central Saxony,  received new impetus. With its precious collection of ceramics made by Feuerriegel - from faiences and terracotta sculptures to stove tiles - Frohburg Castle possesses a truly unique treasure. Another exhibition area will lighten up children's eyes: historical toys from a hundred years will take you back to your grandparents' and great-grandparents' childhood. Doll houses, steam enginges and toy kitchens will rekindle the desire to play, even in adults. 

Baron Ernst von Bluemner had the interior of the castle redesigned in Classicist style at the beginning of the 19th century. Still today, the Stone Hall with its monumental landscape fresco as well as the Hall of Paintings with its arched, illusionistically painted coffered ceiling still impress visitors of Frohburg Castle.
