Ekberg Castle on the Elbe

Ekberg is a "decorative" castle; it never served defensive purposes. The garden and castle with its viewing tower are evidence of late Dresden romance. Today the castle is used as a hotel.

The history of the castle of Ekberg

Eklberg Castle (Schloss Eckberg) is a powerful and mysterious building that was built for almost three years, from 1859 to 1861. The customer was the merchant Johann Daniel Suchet from Frankfurt am Main, the architect was Dresden master Christian Friedrich Arnold. A great role in creating the style of the castle was played by Suchet's love for England, therefore, all elements of the Tudor neo-Gothic were used in the construction. Thus, in the second half of the XIX century, the magical world of Britain arose on the banks of the Elbe.
