Gotha, Friedenstein Palace

En barockvärld av kultur och upplysning i Thüringen och Sachsen

Efter trettioåriga kriget ville människorna bara en sak: leva! Den starka livslusten fick sitt uttryck i barockstilen. Överallt byggdes överdådiga residens för adliga familjer. Du kan också vältra dig i barockens prakt!

The seat of the princes of Schwarzburg-Rudolstadt, this palace was built in 1737. It is one of the most magnificent baroque palaces in Thuringia. In the main wing there is a series of magnificent baroque rooms. Heidecksburg Palace is the headquarters of the Thuringian Palaces and Gardens Foundation.

Strictly ordered from the outside, the epitome of opulence inside, this monumental structure – one of the first baroque palaces in Germany – towers over the town of Gotha. read more »

This stately home near Radebeul, doubling as a themed winery, is the first of its kind in Europe. Augustus the Strong and his courtiers once celebrated the pleasures of the grape here. Today's visitors are greeted by a modern vineyard estate. This baroque house and garden has its own inn and a tradition of making wine and sekt that dates back 800 years.
