Schloss Hartenfels Reviews
Jättefin utställning av gamla vapen och en fiffig maskin för framställande av stadens historia. Restaurationsarbeten pågår ännu vilket litet påverkar upplevelsen. more »Very nice exhibition of old weapons and a clever machine for the presentation of the city's history. Restoration work is still underway, which slightly affects the experience.

The impressive castle complex awaits visitors with several exhibitions: The exhibition "Spuren des Injustice" deals very movingly with the history of Torge during the Second World War, the Russian occupation and in the GDR. It is even accessible free of charge. Next door is waiting with "Standfest. Bible Festival. Trinkfest" is an interactive exhibition of the same kind, which deals with Johann Friedrich the Magnanimous and life at Hartenfels Castle. This exhibition is a great experience for young and old. On the other hand, the exhibition of the armoury of the Dresden State Art Collections is quite different, but you should still look at it. Other highlights were the castle church consecrated by the reformer Martin Luther with the unique altar and the pulpit on the long side instead of the front of the altar as usual, as well as the Great Wendelstein. For 1 Euro (should you have suitable) you can also climb the Hausmannsturm and enjoy the view over Torgau. The attitude of the bears in the trench of Hartenfels Castle is somewhat ambivalent. Of course, this has a long tradition and is certainly interesting for children, but the one bear that was seen on my visit did not look very happy. The great exchange with the staff in the exhibition and in the castle chapel made my visit a great experience.
Small castle. 1st purpose built Protestant church. Go to the museum, great info on local history. Plan on 1-2 hours.
Beautiful Castle. During GDR times they filmed the fairy tale " Sleeping Beauty" here.
