Tips for trips

On the Trail of Augustus the Strong

A warm welcome to Schloesserland Sachsen. Baroque splendour and elegant pomp await you. On a weekend trip in Dresden or its surroundings you will discover the celebratory and hunting culture of the Baroque era, on the original sites. Walk in the footsteps of Augustus the Strong, Elector of Saxony, King of Poland and creator of the Baroque atmosphere in the Dresden valley. 
Visit the pavilions and hunting lodges of the Saxon Elector Augustus the Strong, which were built by the famous architect Matthaeus Daniel Poeppelmann. Augustus the Strong extends a hearty welcome to you when you come to Moritzburg Castle, the Dresden Zwinger, Pillnitz Castle and Park, and the Grosssedlitz Baroque Garden.
