Close to Dresden, there is the unique Cultural Landscape of Moritzburg with Moritzburg Castle, situated among beautiful ponds.
Right next to Moritzburg is Meissen, the "cradle of Saxony" and situated in Saxony’s wine-country. It is best-known internationally for its famous china (porcelain). The „Burgberg“ with Cathedral, Bishop's Palace, Granary and Albrechtsburg Castle are a superb ensemble of buildings.
The Albrechtsburg Castle is Germany’s first-ever palace and one of Germany’s finest secular buildings in late Gothic style.
