Hubertusburg

Hubertusburg is a palace in Saxony, in the village of Wermsdorf and midway 6 m. between the towns Oschatz and Grimma. It was built in 1721-1724 by Frederick Augustus I, Elector of Saxony and King of Poland, and is given to his son Augustus III in 1724, as a hunting box, and was often the scene of brilliant festivities. It is famous for the peace signed here, the Treaty of Hubertusburg, on February 15, 1763, which with the Treaty of Paris, ended the Seven Years' War and the French and Indian War.

After undergoing various vicissitudes, in 1911 it served the purpose of a lunatic asylum and a training school for nursing sisters.
