Project details : The castle of “Lichtenwalde” was built in the period 1722 to 1726 on the foundations of an older castle; it comprises three wings, each of three stories. The owner was Count von Watzdorf, who had been a minister at the court of Augustus the Strong, the Elector of Saxony and King of Poland. Later it passed into the possession of the family of the Counts Vitzthum von Eckstädt. The architect is unknown, but was probably a master builder at the court of Dresden. The front of the castle did not have much sculptural ornamentation, but was decorated with illusionistic paintings. The chapel is much older than the rest of the castle having been built as part of a 13th century castle. In summer and autumn 2000 the remains of this earlier castle were investigated by means of archaeological excavations undertaken in the inner courtyard
