Schloss Lichtenburg bei Prettin. Vom Antoniterkloster zum Witwensitz

Shortly after the Reformation, the Saxon Elector integrated the medieval Antonine monastery “Lichtenberg” near Prettin (Saxony-Anhalt) into his residential system. Lichtenburg Castle became one of the favourite dowager’s seats in early-modern Saxony. In the early 17th century, the dowager Electress Hedwig of Denmark (1581-1641) and her court mainly lived in Lichtenburg. Several Renaissance and early Baroque wall paintings and wooden ceilings have survived in situ until today. Schloss Lichtenburg bei Prettin. Vom Antoniterkloster zum Witwensitz weiterlesen
