Albrechtsburg Castle

ATTENDANCE : 100 000 VISITORS PER YEAR

Majestically towering Meissen, the late Gothic Albrechtsburg Castle is an architectural masterpiece of the 15th century and is considered the oldest palace in Germany. It was notably the residence of the Wettin dynasty and the cradle of porcelain production in Europe with the establishment of the famous royal manufactory as early as 1710.

Inside the monument, the HistoPad takes you on an immersive journey through three epochs of its history. Visitors will be able to attend the farewell banquet given in honour of Frederick the Wise in 1493 when he set off on a pilgrimage to the Holy Land, discover the secrets of Saxon porcelain production in the 18th and 19th centuries or explore the collections of paintings hidden in the castle during the Second World War.
