Mosigkau Palace and Garden

Mosigkau Palace, a pearl of the Rococo period, was built by the favourite daughter of Prince Leopold I of Anhalt-Dessau, Anna Wilhelmine, as her summer residence.

Explore the hidden highlights of the so-called ‘little Sanssouci’ within a guided tour, such as the Garden Room with remarkable paintings mainly by Flemish and Dutch masters, amongst others, Anthonis van Dyck, Peter Paul Rubens or Jan Brueghel Sr.  

From there you have a wonderful view over the lovingly designed pleasure garden with colourful summer flowers, the hedge area with the bowling house and the labyrinth. The orangeries houses centuries-old exotic tub plants.

After the death of Anna Wilhelmine in 1780, a noble women's convent for unmarried women was established in the building.
