Moritzburg Castle and Maria Magdalena Chapel
The Moritzburg in Halle is one of the most impressive late mediaeval fortresses in Central Germany. It was built between 1484 and 1503 to be the residence of the archbishops of Magdeburg. The castle chapel of St. Maria Magdalena is built in a late-Gothic style typical of sacred architecture in Upper Saxony . Today, this former fortress houses the Stiftung Moritzburg – Kunstmuseum des Landes Sachsen-Anhalt (State of Saxony-Anhalt Art Museum) and since 2008 has been delighting visitors with the modern architectural solutions that have been found to incorporate parts of the castle which until then were unused ruins.
