Pillnitz Castle

Pillnitz Castle

Elector Augustus the Strong, ruler with his voracious appetite for the female sex, once acquired the castle for his favorite Anna Constantia von Cosel, who immediately began with its Baroque conversion.

The English, Dutch and Chinese gardens on the extensive garden grounds urge the visitor to take a stroll. The Orangery and the Palm-tree Greenhouse that has been reconstructed in old splendor attract those who take a botanical interest to appraise their exotic treasures as does the famous 250-year-old Japanese camellia. This remarkable ornamental tree is so valuable that it has been given a home all on its own.
