Colditz then and now


Recommended Posts

Schloss Colditz and it's previous occupants can be seen in the black and white photo. As a comparison, a present day colour photo of the castle, which was originally built in the Renaisance style, as it stands today. It is presently a museum and also used for festivities, as well as partly a youth hostel. The old town of Colditz is situated in the Leipzig area (Saxony) between the Zwickauer and Freiberger Mulde and has a lot of historical architechture.
