Colditz Castle
Escape from Colditz

Royal palace, hunter’s castle, widow’s residence - with its white gables, Colditz Castle is one of the most beautiful monuments of the 16th Century in Central Germany - and an excursion place for anyone interested in history.

During the Second World War, the castle was a prisoner of war camp for high-ranking officers of the western allies, such as Winston Churchhill’s nephew and the former English King George VI. - legends of military history.

The »escape museum« tells of imaginative escape attempts. But also the whispering arch, the Renaissance portal of the castle chapel, the horse pond and the castle tower with the Walhaz canopy are impressive testimonies of the castle's history.
