Monument ensemble

The Building itself belongs to a well protected architectural heritage.

Tradition and Modernism


Protected as a historical monument, the building complex of the „Waldschaenke“, consisting of two floors, had its beginning as a guard cottage built around the year 1770 along with the colt stable at the entrance of the historical game preserve and the pheasant palace. The building was rebuilt into a licensed hunter's lodge restaurant.

Following further reconstruction (in 1926 and 1967) as well as a thorough modernisation in the nineties, taking into account factors for the preservation of the historical nature of the building, the Waldschaenke has all of the following available:

  • a lobby,
  • seven restaurant- and conference rooms,
  • a cosy indoor terrace
  • a westward terrace facing the forest and meadows and
  • a barbecue area

In the attic floor of the old building as well as in the newly built Moritz House beside the hotel garden there are:

  • 5 single rooms,
  • 24 double rooms and
  • 4 family suites, 

combining both modern standards as well as an individual furnishing style.

The historical building and the new wing of the hotel (Moritz House) constitute part of the cultural Moritzburg landscape in the conservation area.

Paintings, which portray nature, landscape and traditional hunting scenes, crossbows, boar spears, antlers and other hunting trophies, wooden sculptures, stained glass, ceramics and precious porcelain bestow a unique character to the restaurant- and conference rooms.
Leather tapestries dating from the time of August the Strong embellish parts of the walls.

The Jagdzug hunting scene of elector prince Johann Georg the First (1611-1659), famous for its special beauty, can be seen throughout the house.

The style of the house with its dignified ambience provides for a romantic and comfortable atmosphere.
