Hartenfels Castle

Hartenfels Castle is probably the most striking building in the cityscape. It is located near the city centre on the shore of the Elbe. The Große Wendelstein (great spiral stone) in the castle, built between 1485 and 1623, from the times of Early Renaissance is regarded as unique. The castle church was consecrated in 1544 as first protestant church in Germany by none other than Martin Luther himself.
