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.

Tips for trips

The Gardens of Kings

Take a walk in Saxony’s most beautiful gardens, allow to be inebriated by their scents, experience unexpected views and gain undreamt-of insights. Relax in the spacious gardens or stroll in sunshine, accompanied by the splashing of fountains. And take a piece of Schloesserland home with you: a flower bed brick from Bad Muskau, a camellia shoot from Pillnitz, summer flowers or an Azalea from Weesenstein can all be purchased in those places.
