History of Rochlitz Castle
The over thousand-year-old castle is, beside Albrechtsburg Castle Meissen, one oft he most important seats of the Wettins. The rooms tell of the changeful history of Rochlitz Castle, which was determined by phases of intensive use as imperial castle, electoral residence, state prison, place of exile, boy’s school, hunting castle and widow’s seat right up to neglect and decay.
From 27 April 2013 you can delve into spheres of life from ages past and experience the new exhibition »FAT, ONE-EYED, REVOLUTIONARY – Three Wettins for a thousand stories« at Rochlitz Castle. Here you can find information regarding the new exhibition as well as the special exhibition from May 1 to 31 October 2014 at Rochlitz Castle: »a history of STRONG WOMEN – 500 years of Reformation«.
