Sieglitz Park

After 1777, the creation of the woodland park, Sieglitz Park, in the west of the former fishing village Vockerode, was commissioned by Prince Franz of Anhalt-Dessau. Artistically enhanced gates are welcoming you at the entrances to this park.

Get in touch with the delightful wilderness and discover unique historical monuments such as the reconstructed ‚Solitude’, a neo-classical building in the form of a Roman temple. Once the house was used as a spa for Prince Franz who suffered from rheumatism. The inscription ’DER BESSERUNG’ (english ’To Recovery’) on top of the portico give the hint to the original purpose of the ’Solitude’. Besides, Prince Franz’s secret diplomatic negotiations were held here.
