My wife and I stayed in the modern Youth Hostel for the final night of a rail holiday to Saxony.
We has a large room with en-suite Shower and Toilet. It was very clean with comfortable beds.
A buffet dinner was organised in the refectory which was superb. Beers and soft drinks also available to purchase.
The Castle has a long history prior to its WW2 fame as an Allied Prisoner of war camp (Oflag4c). We had an excellent guided tour in English which included an historical overview. The recently refurbished museum has excellent displays and artefacts from the prison camp days with story boards in German and English.
The Castle sits in a commanding position above the village of Colditz with its white walls and red roof tiles it looks very imposing.
A very interesting place to visit with excellent accommodation we hope to visit again one day.More
