Altdöbern belonged to Saxony until 1815. From 1749, the estate with the castle and garden complex was owned by Carl Heinrich von Heineken (1707-1791), a trusted friend of the Saxon prime minister Count Brühl. Heineken was among the most acclaimed art experts of his time and as the Inspector General, he played an important role in promoting the splendour and reputation of the collections in Dresden.

Transformation of the castle complex

 

Heineken also made his mark on Altdöbern: He instructed the most famous artists from Dresden to redesign the castle and the park under supervision of the architect Johann Christoph Knöffel, to create an outstanding rococo ensemble of architecture, landscape design, nature and art. The grounds were enlarged to almost six times their original size and canals, water basins, fountains, bridges, pavilions and precious sandstone sculptures were added.

 

“Saxon rococo”

 

A visit to the ensemble is very worthwhile, despite the fact that the castle is currently being refurbished and can therefore not be viewed on the inside. The castle and castle grounds in Altdöbern are prominent evidence of baroque splendour and among the most beautiful examples of “Saxon rococo” in the Niederlausitz region. Water features and events held in the historic hedge theatre make the castle grounds an interesting place to explore, while the castle café in the refurbished orangery is a lovely place to linger for a while (<a href="http://www.orangerie-altdoebern.de/" target="_blank">www.orangerie-altdoebern.de</a>).
