Lichtenwalde Castle and Park
Pearl of the Baroque

Lichtenwalde Castle and Park is a magical place in Central Saxony that charms visitors with a wide range of water features: 335 historical fountains are spread across the baroque garden, all interconnected in an ingenious circuit. In spring, guests can experience a symphony of rustling leaves, bubbling fountains and fragrant flowers. The subtle design of Lichtenwalde Castle and Park makes it one of the prettiest baroque ensembles in Germany. 

The castle houses the Treasure Chamber Museum with exhibits from foreign cultures and even ancient civilizations, such as porcelain and silk embroidery from China and Japan, ritualistic objects from Nepal and spirit masks from West Africa. Another unforgettable attraction is the largest collection of silhouettes in Germany.
