Wildeck Castle with Renaissance rooms, motorcycle exhibition, coin workshop, printing museum with book bindery and department of stamps.
Today only “Fat Henry”, an over 30-meter-high residential watchtower with meter-thick walls, is a reminder of the once defiant fortification. In the middle of the 16th century Wildeck was converted by order of Duke Moritz of Saxony into a far less martial hunting castle.
Today, the Renaissance castle houses several museums especially devoted to the industrial history of the region. Bikers will be thrilled by the many two-wheeled treasures, since Zschopau used to be the center of Saxon automotive industry in the 20th century. Especially children will love Wildeck Castle's coin-minting workshop, the mineral collection and the giant slide.
