The City of “Skat” and Playing Cards

The former imperial stronghold and residence of the House of Wettin looks back on a lively history of more than a thousand years. The past lives on, and the imposing Residence Castle and the lovingly restored historic center continue to enchant visitors. The valuable art collections held by the renowned Lindenau Museum is unique. Visitors exploring the residence city stroll through lush green landscape parks, picturesque market squares and romantic alleys, passing by the magnificent bourgeois houses that fringe the historic center.
