Moritzburg Castle is a Baroque palace located about 13 kilometres northwest of the Saxon capital, Dresden. The castle has four round towers and lies on a symmetrical artificial island.
It is named after Duke Moritz of Saxony, who had a hunting lodge built there between 1542 and 1546. The surrounding woodlands and lakes have been a favourite hunting area of the electors and kings of Saxony.
The interior of the castle is furnished with examples of opulent baroque decor from the time of Augustus the Strong. The collection of red deer antlers is one of the most important of its kind. The castle's largest collection of antlers is shown in the dining room with 71 trophies, most of them between 270 and 400 years old.
