The romantic castle can be reached on a hike from Scharfenberg into the Rehbocktal valley. It is not only known because of its charming location. Numerous cultural events invite you to visit.
Hidden above the Elbe, in the hills of the left Elbe valleys of the municipality of Klipphausen, lies picturesquely the winding castle Batzdorf. On the outskirts of the village of Batzdorf, between gardens, orchards and the wooded Reebock valley, you will find the reawakened gem from ancient times.

Opening hours

Whitsun plays; baroque festivals, Advent market, on open monument days, to various exhibitions
