"The Castle in Zschopau" Zschopau Travelogue by Russell_the_Wombat

Zschopau Travel Guide: 1 reviews and 16 photos

The castle in Zschopau is a museum. Of course it has history in there, lots of it. The model up there shows the town and castle as it was in former times.

But they also show other things in there. Motorbikes, for example. The connections between motorbikes and a castle did not occur to me at once - imagine a knight in shiny armour on a motorbike, rattling over cobblestone streets... However, I learned that some decades ago Zschopau used to be the seat of a famous motorbike factory.

There is no more ols furniture in the rooms but they have their renaissance ceilings and some frescoes on the walls.

This hall is used for weddings. It has the most beautiful ceiling.

A quick photo in the rain in the courtyard of the castle.

The castle keep can be climbed but since the view was zero because of the rain and low clouds we decided to save ourselves the effort.

There were some funny animals around the foot of the keep. The hippopotamuses were telling each other jokes. Hippos don't mind wet weather.
