Schloss Albrechtsberg, Dresden

4.0
Albrechtsberg Palace or Albrechtsberg Castle is a Neoclassical stately home above the Elbe river in the Loschwitz district of Dresden. It was erected in 1854 according to plans designed by the Prussian court and landscaping architect Adolf Lohse at the behest of Prince Albert, younger brother of the Prussian king Frederick William IV.
About 1803 James Ogilvy, 7th Earl of Findlater had acquired several vineyards in the Dresden Elbe Valley and had a manor house built on what later became the site of Albrechtsberg Palace. However, Ogilvy died in 1811 and did not witness its completion. Johann Gabriel Krebs bought the country house and rebuilt it into a restaurant that became the most popular day trip restaurant of Dresden, abode of Gottfried Semper and Richard Wagner.
Prince Albert of Prussia (1809–1872) in 1853 had secondly married Rosalie von Rauch, Countess of Hohenau (1820–1879); due to this morganatic marriage he was forced to leave the Prussian court and had to look for a new home abroad. He commissioned his chamberlain's wife, Baroness of Stockhausen to find an adequate domicile. She turned to the Saxon capital and acquired the area “Findlater's Vineyard”, including the manor and gardens, by order of the Prince for 16,000 Thalers.

  • We rented the castle for a company event and had dinner in the big nice room. On the terass you have a wonderful view on the Elbe and on Dresden. Food was excellent.  more »
  • The appearance is solemn. The inside is a space reserved for events, and there is no feeling of depth as it looks, but it was beautiful.
