Explore the Leipzig Region: Colditz Castle

Leipzig Region offers a wide range of historic highlights. One you should not miss is Colditz Castle. The history of this iconic castle dates back 1,000 years within which it has witnessed a diverse range of use. However, most famous are the years between 1940 and 1945 when high-level war officers from the Allied forces were held prisoners in the internment camp at Colditz Castle. Despite its escape-proof reputation some POWs (prisoners of war) came up with highly inventive escape plans and managed to flee, which led to the legendary fame of Colditz Castle. Today, the picturesque place overlooking the Mulde River is a popular destination for a day trip from Leipzig. So come and escape to rather than from Colditz!
