Trendsetter since 1471
The late gothic Albrechtsburg Meissen Castle towers majestically over the picturesque Elbe valley. Built in the 15th century, it is considered the oldest castle in Germany. In the course of time, it has become a trendsetter not only in architectural terms. Let yourself be enchanted by its timeless beauty when you visit the castle.

The focus is on representative living. As Germany's oldest castle, Albrechtsburg Meissen was already a trendsetter when it was built and amazed people with its outstanding architectural design in the late Gothic style.
