Pillnitz Castle

Local nameSchloss Pillnitz
LocationDresden, Deutschland

Pillnitz Palace is a restored Baroque schloss at the eastern end of the city of Dresden in the German state of Saxony. It is located on the bank of the River Elbe in the former village of Pillnitz. It was the summer residence of many electors and kings of Saxony; it is also known for the Declaration of Pillnitz in 1791.

The complex consists of three main buildings, the Riverside Palace on the riverfront; the Upper Palace on the hillside, both Baroque with Chinoiserie elements; and the later Neoclassical New Palace, which links them together on the east side. The buildings enclose a Baroque garden and are surrounded by a large public park.
