Altenburg is located in the far eastern part of Thuringia – this is where bridge and playing cards were born. The 1,000 year old residence of Wettin sovereigns is an insider tip: Marvel at the impressive palace, besides playing cards, at the royal home decor throughout the centuries, stroll through the wonderful palace gardens to the Lindau Museum with its precious art collection and to the natural history museum Mauritianum or discover the lovingly restored historic city center. For those who would like to try out the city's liquid speciality can visit the art-deco brewery with museum and distillery.
