The Meissen Albrechtsburg Castel is a late Gothic architectural monument and is considered to be the first palace in Germany.

Meissen Albrechtsburg Castle and Cathedral

Symbols of the city are Germany's most clean-cut Gothic Cathedral with its steeples and the first German castle, the late Gothic Albrechtsburg Castle on the mighty Meissen Burgberg (Castle Mountain). In 1710, the Albrechtsburg was the birthplace of the Meissen porcelain manufactory, first porcelain manufacturing site of its kind in Europe.

Discover Meißen

Tip: Meissen wine is a must

For over 800 years, wine has been grown in the Elbe Valley. That is why a taste of it in one of the rustic wine taverns is a must. Equally recommendable are the vineyard hikes, winery tours or excursions along the Saxon Wine Route into the surrounding area of Meissen.
