Glauchau Castle

At Glauchau Castle, impressive architecture meets unique museum culture. 

Towards the end of the 12th century, the Lords von Schoenburg, one of the oldest Saxon noble families, erected a castle on the edge of the Mulde River valley. 300 years later, it was converted into a late-Gothic residential castle with arched curtain windows, the Banquet Hall and a castle chapel - today's Glauchau Castle. 

At Glauchau Castle, there is one of the oldest museums of Saxony. Already founded in 1884, it displays the history of the castle and the town of Glauchau, the everyday life of the weavers in the Von Schoenburg lands as well as the history of the interior of stately residences to the present day. Two more exhibitions are dedicated to fine arts and the »Father of Mineralogy« Georgius Agricola.
