Off to the countryside! Experience a Saxon country manor
located only a 40-minute drive along the highway from Dres-
den. Vivacious country baroque, embedded in the green hills,
little forests and valleys of the idyllic Upper Lusatia – this is
Rammenau Baroque Castle.
Its historical rooms and their interior reveal exciting stories of
its former owners and of Baroque and Classicist interior de-
signs. Stylish salons, precious porcelain and enchanting murals
will make you dream of what life was like at what used to be a
summer residence. You can find relaxation at its best in the
romantic landscape park right at the castle.
Inspired by cosmopolitan trade, the time of the Baroque was
fascinated by exotic cultures. Its most favored style was the
chinoiserie. Asian models influenced the artists and artisans
and their repertoire of shapes and forms. At Rammenau Baro-
que Castle, it is mainly the tapestries in the Chinese Room that
tell of a carefree way of living in far-off lands and, thus, of the
first stage of interior decoration of the castle.
Round off your outing to the country Baroque by paying a visit
to the superb castle restaurant. The historical dining salons and
the castle terrace invite you to take delight in the dining culture
offered by the former castle kitchen or enjoy the hearty meals
served from the servants’ kitchen.

ENGLISH
Johannis Tower (also klnown as Cosel Tower)
On the way from Dresden into Saxon Switzerland, one can
behold it from afar already. The towers of the Stolpen castle rise
into the sky like raised forefingers. This place is special. Marked
by the fate of a woman who did not want to give in, which she
had to pay for dearly by being incarcerated in the former castle
for almost 50 years. Eventually she was also buried there. Talk
is, of course, of Anna Constantia von Brockdorff, better known
as Countess Cosel – or more popularly as Saxony’s bestknown
king’s mistress.
The impressive estate in the cozy little town of Stolpen has yet
more to offer. The castle is situated on top of a mountain,
which in its turn is very special, too. It is of volcanic rock, of
basalt. The basalt rock of Stolpen is one of the most important
volcanic rock formations in the Saxon and North-Bohemian
region and, as a natural monument, it bears the status of a
»National Geotope«.
And something else: at Stolpen Castle, one can marvel at the
deepest well that has ever been driven into basalt rock. Its gullet
is 85 meters deep. Hold on tight when you stand on the edge
of that well and gaze into the dark abyss. Even if only remain-
ders of the once proud castle and fortress have survived: Stol-
pen can look back on a well-fortified history. Listen to Count-
ess Cosel taking you on a tour, or attend one of the numerous
events.
Stolpen Castle –
simply inescapable
