the oldest castle in germany: albrechtsburg in meissen 🏰
you should visit it! 😉👍🏻
“the more than 1000 years old residence meissen is situated at the elbe river about 25 km northwest of dresden. the townscape is dominated by the gorgeous ensemble of the albrechtsburg and the adjacent cathedral on the castle hill, which presents a picturesque sight, especially when approaching from the river side.
this charming city is known, above all, for the manufacture of the famous meissen porcelain,, the cradle of which was the albrechtsburg., where it was produced for more than 150 years, before the manufacture moved to its newmeissen castle hill - cathedral square home in downtown.
the city of meissen hosts a multitude of further cultural-historical treasures and tourist attractions, such as the church of our ladies, the old town hall and other well preserved historic buildings. beyond that visitors can enjoy enchanting ancient taverns and restaurants, which give the city an additional charm.
from the castle hill one can enjoy spectacular views over the city and the river plains.”
