Pheasant palace

300 m away from the Waldschaenke...

you will find the pheasant palace.

The noble society used to meet here in the luxuriously embellished rooms of the pheasant palace to celebrate festive occasions.

In 1728 August the Strong had a pheasant garden set up east of the Moritzburg hunting castle. The builders were elector prince Friedrich August the Third of Saxony, the great grandson of August the Strong along with his chamberlain Lord Camillo Graf Marcolini.

Erected by architect Johann Daniel Schade, the pheasant palace is the center of the pheasant garden and served as summer and hunting residence for the family of the elector prince.
