Viewed from across the lake it is impressive but up close it was one of the shabbier palaces I’ve seen. No manicured gardens or grounds. Just a big hunting lodge on the island in the lake.

This castle is really a jewel.
It has a ton of state room. You can rent tablets, that give you extra information and little games, perfect for adults ... and teens/kids, in different languages.
Also this makes it possible to visit the castle at your own pace, instead of a rushed guided tour.

Saxony is a land of stunning castles, palaces and gardens and Schloss Moritzburg is - in my opinion - in the top five. The castle is only 18 km north of Dresden so spare some time for your visit there!

Beautiful palace! We went by car and the parking was around 3 euro for 2 hours but we did not need that much time because we did not go inside the castle. The best pictures can be taken however from outside of the island where the castle is located because then you can have the water on the photo too. My last photo was taken from the parking lot a bit further away from the castle. Nice activity on a sunny day. But don't expect much, I think one hour is okay.

Beautiful castle and absolutely amazing park! Loved the place - staff is nice and friendly if you have any questions. Certainly worth a visit - however: no signs or descriptions inside the castle in English. So if you don’t speak some kind of German you will loose a lot of the history - even though you have the histopad

Castle looked great from the outside, but the inside was limited to a set of scenes and production processes for the 1973 GDR/Czechoslovak production of Cinderella (3 Hazelnuts). Hmmmm.....

It is very nice castle, very famous for a czech-german fairy tail. There is also a presentation dedicated to this fairy tail.
There is a lake around the castle, but in December there was no water.

Definitely a place worth to visit. Very picturesque chateau in middle of a pond. The tour is without a guide and unfortunately the number of accessable rooms is limited to just a few. Behind the chateau is a small garden, but you can have at least a nice small walk around the pond from there. To get here via public transport from Dresden, take bus number 477 from Bahnhof Neustadt. You can by tickets before, just remember you need ticket for two tariff zones. Otherwise you should buy ticket from driver. Have nice day!

My wife and I spent three nights in Dresden, and on our final touring day, had our guide drive us over to Moritzburg and Meissen.

Our expectations as to visiting Schloss Moritzburg were high, and we were not in the least bit disappointed. The symmetrical old hunting lodge is a magnificent structure worthy of a 360 degree walk around, followed by purchase of the E8 ticket for an interior tour. We did not make use of the audio guide, as we had our own guide with us pointing out highlights, plus there are a large number of plaques in the rooms offering explanations in both German, and thank goodness English as well for the benefit of those among us who are non-German speakers.

There are several rooms to be seen, in all honesty most look pretty similar with limited interior furnishing and aged leather walls, but there was one exhibit and one live demonstration clearly indicating the painstaking process involved in rehabilitating the centuries old interior walls. A highlight was certainly the dining room, a bright airy large room with multiple animal heads and numbers underneath each showing the number of antler points present.

The clean and no-charge restrooms were appreciated.

There is a very attractive dining facility on site but was not a place for us to stop as we were there in the relatively early morning.

Interior photography is allowed, of course without flash.

A nice gift shop is also on the premises.

We covered the whole tour to our satisfaction within about 45 minutes, though I imagine that if you use the audio guide (E2 plus refundable E8 deposit), one could spend more time absorbing more detail.

Long story short, if you are a chateau lover, you will not want to miss Schloss Moritzburg.
