A well-preserved medieval castle about 20 kms northeast from Chemnitz (also quite close to Dresden / Leipzig), Burg Kriebstein is a place worth to visit. Can be reached easily by car; many parking spots right next to the attraction. The castle and its surroundings offer...More

This was the first castle tour we took on a series of castles across the country. It is impressive to drive up to, catching quite a few good views before arriving. There is a small parking area right by the main entrance and some smaller...More

Wonderfully located castle- absolutely worth seeing! You can even ask for a guided tour and if the staff have time, you can get a super class private tour guide. You have to try it and you'll find out things you would not know otherwise. We...More

Despite being closed over winter months we walked around the castle area and it was great. There is an especially nice walk around the river which takes you to a dam. Lovely walk with great photo opportunities...

Nice little but beautiful castle at the banks of the Zschopau river. It is rightfully called the most beautiful Knights' Castle in Saxony with breathtaking interior and moving history. Aske for an extensive tour and you'll see many hidden treasures.
