In the Muldental, the leisure adventures away from the big cities continue. The most beautiful knight's castle in Saxony rises on a steep rock in Central Saxony: Kriebstein Castle. After a tour of the castle, the journey continues to Wechselburg Basilica. Thanks to its porphyry elements, it is not only exemplary for the architectural history of the region, but also houses one of the most precious Romanesque works of art in the world with its massive rood screen. Situated on a rocky spur in the middle of a nature reserve, the castle, which was first mentioned in a document in 1190, watches over the Zwickau Mulde valley. Afterwards, it is worth taking a detour to the Choco del Sol chocolate factory.
