Medieval Kriebstein Castle is situated in Middle Saxony, right at the centre of the triangle between the cities of Dresden, Chemnitz and Leipzig.

Saxony’s most beautiful knight’s castle, a closed, fully preserved and completely reconstructed building complex from Late Gothic times, rises on a steep rock towering over the Zschopau River.

Discover its 600 years of history when visiting it and feel as if you were back in the Middle Ages. Apart from its castle museum, Kriebstein has numerous events, guided tours as well as its castle inn »Zum Hungerturm« to offer.

Today’s highlights to the visitor include a tour of the monumental residential tower, from its lowest cellar up to the medieval and historically preserved floors under the roof, of the castle chapel with precious murals from around 1410, of the Kriebstein Room, of the furnished interior used by the Arnim family and also of the castle well.

Various banquet halls are available for weddings, family parties and business functions as well as for events of any kind.
