Welcome to the Must-See Three!
Join us for a voyage of discovery
The Must-See Three – Augustusburg Castle, Scharfenstein Castle and Lichtenwalde Castle & Gardens – invite you to explore their culture and history for yourself
Augustusburg Castle – where the Renaissance meets bikes
Home to one of the foremost motorcycle collections in Europe, a whole range of historic coaches and one of the most valuable Cranach paintings in the whole of Saxony, Augustusburg Castle is unmissable. Originally built as a hunting lodge and summer residence for Augustus, Elector of Saxony, and renowned as one of the most beautiful Renaissance castles in Central Europe, the grandeur of Augustusburg Castle also contains untold treasures.
Scharfenstein Castle – the family castle
This fortress is an interactive adventure for the whole family. Whether it’s the Erzgebirge Christmas and Toy Museum, the “Folk Art with a Flash of Fun” exhibition, or the Castle Museum with its displays about legendary folk hero Karl Stülpner, there are plenty of exhibits for visitors to discover and interact with. We have held the title of “family-friendly experience” since 2012.
Lichtenwalde Castle & Gardens – A rendezvous for the arts
Stroll through one of the most remarkable examples of Baroque architecture and design in Germany. Enjoy a relaxing day in magnificent parkland not far from Dresden, or visit the Treasury Museum and admire artefacts from distant cultures, some of which are thousands of years old and of untold value.
And take advantage of the special exhibitions which change annually, with interactive characters that truly bring culture to life.
