Burg Mildenstein

Imperial castle and nursery – 1000 years of Mildenstein Castle

Mildenstein Castle rises on a rocky spur above the valley of the Freiberg Mulde. For more than 3,000 years, this exposed location in today’s Leisnig was already inhabited. The mighty keep in the middle of the castle stands as a medieval symbol of power, which can be conquered by visitors today.

In a tour of the front castle you will meet Staufer Emperor Barbarossa and rulers of the Wettin court. Take a safe look into the oppressive prison cells or stroll virtually through imposing knights’ halls.

After a visit to the 32-meter-high keep and a fantastic view over the Mulde valley, take a detour to the Romanesque castle chapel with its unique entrance portal.

In the manor house, a typical castle black kitchen with an open fireplace awaits you. On the upper floor is the Fürstenstube, a hall built for representation, and the adjoining Tafelstube. Today, a family-friendly exhibition on the life of the young princes and princesses 500 years ago at Mildenstein is shown here.

The Mildenstein Castle team hopes you enjoy your virtual tour.
