Moritzburg

You can rarely visit a place more idyllic than a baroque palace, surrounded by a lake. Even writing these words I hear the birds chirping and the wind rustling the leaves of the royal trees. And while I’ve already visited plenty of castles around Europe, there won’t be a day where someone asks me “Hey, do you want to go check out this castle?” and I roll my eyes and answer “What? Another one?”. Which is why when my boyfriend asked me this question when we were visiting Dresden I answered “Pfsh, of course” and got on the bus.

Moritzburg began as a modest hunting lodge in the 16th century and grew from that. In the 18th century, the garden was added. There, you can really feel like a royal while eating your sandwich.
