Schloss Albrechtsberg

The crowning hall of Schloss Albrechtsberg offers a dreamlike view during the chamber concerts. The Elbe-castle was constructed by Adolf Lohse in the midst of the 19th century. The commissioner was no less than Prince Albrecht of Prussia himself, younger brother of King Friedrich Wilhelm IV and the first German Emperor Wilhelm I. Albrecht divorced his unloved first wife and committed to an inappropriate marriage to his middle-class mistress. For that he even risked getting banned from the Prussian court as a persona non grata. He found a new home for himself and his wife in Dresden in a severely exposed location. The crowning hall was used by the Dresden Philharmonic as an ideal venue for chamber music.
