Moritzburg is a small town in the middle of Saxony around the baroque Moritzburg Castle. The previous Renaissance-style hunting lodge was converted into a summer palace in 1733 at the instigation of Augustus the Strong. In 1945 Prince Ernst Heinrich of Saxony hid the Saxon treasure in 40 crates in the castle park.
