Guest Service

The mighty castle rests majestically on steeply sloping rocks over the valley of the Freiberger Mulde River. Even today, its sight conveys the significance it once used to have.

In its almost 1,000 years of history, Mildenstein Castle served as an imperial castle, margraves’ residence and electoral palace as well as an office seat, including a prison.
