Welcome at Weesenstein Castle!

The German not-for-profit Limited »State Palaces, Castles, and Gardens of Saxony« (»Staatliche Schlösser, Burgen und Gärten Sachsen gemeinnützige GmbH«) merchandises, manages, and presents nineteen of the most interesting Saxon cultural landmarks. One of these significant castles, palaces, and gardens is Weesenstein Castle. This unique architectural ensemble, located hardly 20 kilometres from the Saxon capital Dresden, was brought into prominence as the private property of King John of Saxony (König Johann von Sachsen), the most famous Wettin of the 19th century. Today, Weesenstein Castle is proud to host a highly respected exhibition about the history of the buildings and their former owners but also provides cultural and culinary offers.
