Mosigkau Palace and Park was built between 1752 and 1757 by order of Princess Anna Wilhelmine of Anhalt-Dessau and is one of the few rococo ensembles in Germany that has been preserved largely in its original condition. After the death of the lady of the castle in 1780, the ensemble was converted into a convent for unmarried, aristocratic women in accordance with her wishes, which existed until 1945. In spite of the transformations during the time of the convent, the original design can still be recognized by the basic structure of the park, the orangery, the Chinese tea house and the maze. An avenue of old pyramid poplars leads in the northern direction to the cemetery of the collegiate ladies - a place of meditation and a special idyll in the Mosigkauer complex.

Inside the castle, 24 rooms with largely original furnishings can be admired. In the gallery hall you can see important paintings by Dutch painters such as Antonis van Dyck or Peter Paul Rubens, who came from the "Orange Inheritance", hung in baroque style, i.e. next to each other without any gaps.

The garden borders on the south of the gallery hall. In it there are hedge sections with the bowling alley arbor, a fish pond and a maze. The main attraction of the rococo garden is the orangery at the rear exit, two flanking buildings with rare and partly centuries-old potted plants, which line the main path to the castle in the summer months. The statues of Mars, Diana, Flora and a nymph were brought from the park of Wust Manor to the park of Mosigkau Castle in 1951.

Today, the park belongs to the Dessau-Wörlitz Garden Kingdom. Special exhibitions and concerts are held regularly in the Mosigkau Castle Museum and the Orangery.
