Barockkirche Brockwitz - Blick aus Richtung Friedhof

Baroque church of Brockwitz

First mentioned in 1205, the church was later rebuilt in a Renaissance style. Only the tower remains from that period. Today’s baroque building was built in 1737.


Karrasburg Museum

A gem of a museum in a location steeped in history; mysterious, rich in treasures, flexible and full of ideas.

Villa Teresa - Blick von oben

Villa Teresa

A stylish hall for chamber music and a memorial to a musician – or a romantic villa for weddings! A jewel in the crown of a landscaped park with a Japanese teahouse, a composer’s pavilion and water lilies.
