Luisium Palace and Park

A UNESCO World Heritage Site
Schlangenhaus im Park Luisium

Spend the night in the Snake House

The building stands on a flood-free hill, in a landscaped garden following the English fashion. This is the site of several neo-Gothic and classicistic garden architectures, among them the Snake House”, the gatehouses and a ruined arch. A grand avenue divides the garden. The eastern half was used for practical purposes, and to grow fruit and vegetables. The close interweaving of the useful with the pleasant is impressive here. To this day, horses enliven the landscape of the original foal pasture near the Luisium.

Special Tip: 

The Kulturstiftung Dessau-Wörlitz rents out vacation apartments in historic buildings. Relax in the heart of the Garden Kingdom.
