Moritzburg Palace is a jewel of Saxon Baroque architecture at the gates of Dresden.

Augustus the Strong, King in Poland and Elector of Saxony, had it converted by his best architects and artists between 1723 and 1733 from a hunting lodge built in the mid-16th century into a prestigious hunting and pleasure palace.

The museum rooms, splendidly furnished with Baroque furniture, paintings and Meissen and East Asian porcelains, provide impressive encounters with Saxon history.

Special attractions include the legendary feather room of Augustus the Strong, the world’s most extensive collection of figuratively painted, punched and embossed leather wallpaper and one of the most important hunting trophy collections with the strongest red deer antlers in the world and the legendary 66-pointer.
