Christmassy castles and romantic palaces
If characters from fairy tales and legends scurry through the torch-lit darkness, crafts are offered and contemplative music can be heard, then Christmas spirit has taken hold of Saxony's castles and palaces - as in the Dresden Castle, in Schloss Wesenstein Castle, Scharfenstein Castle or Nossen Castle, the fortress of Königstein, the castle of Oybin and in Wackerbarth Castle. Moritzburg Castle turns into a fairytale palace. With the special exhibition "Three Hazelnuts for Cinderella" in the historic castle rooms, which had served as film set, the cult fairy tale film becomes alive until long after Christmas.
A wide range of Christmas events in Saxony's castles and palaces can be found in an overview on this site and at www.schloesserland-sachsen.de
