On behalf of Christoph August Imperial Count von Wackerbarth, Johann Christoph Knoeffel, court master builder of Augustus the Strong, designed the Baroque garden around 1728. At the place of the former moated castle, he built a Baroque palace, which forms a charming ensemble of Baroque architecture together with the »Old Castle« originating from the 16th century.

Even today, numerous events take place at the magnificient hall of Zabeltitz Palace and those, who want to get married, will find an ambience suitable for their wedding ceremony and celebration. There are numerous rooms available for cultural events and conferences. Visiting the Zabeltitz Peasant Museum or St. George's Church round off your visit to Zabeltitz Baroque Garden.
