Colditz is not well known to Germans,,most visitors are from England and other allied countries. I know of its history and stories, but to see the place first hand makes everything come alive and it is quite moving. The extended tour is really good value

So often these places which are part of our British psyche are, to say the least, disappointing. Not so so with Colditz Castle. The museum is authentic and informative and the buildings are part of the community being used as a youth hostel, music school...More

Colditz Castle is absolutely must see if you are around. Amazing place, good history lesson. Our guide Steffi Shubert was unbelievable! She knows everything about Colditz Castle and shared that with us with real passion. Highly recommended!

Highly recommend the full day tour of the Castle, they only do a few of these small group tours each year, but they are worth organising your trip around one of these if possible. Steffi, the excellent guide will take you around the castle explaining...More

Sorry a bit late. We were in Leipzig which is a beautiful city with lots of thing to see so we took the car to Colditz. I'm not really sure where to stay if you want to stay near the castle. You could ask directly at the... More
