The Moritzburg Foundation/Moritzburg Castle
The Moritzburg around 1900
The Moritzburg Foundation and its many collections is one of the leading museums in Saxony-Anhalt. Named after the structure in which it is located, the Late Medieval Moritzburg was built between 1484 and 1513 as a residence for the Archbishops of Magdeburg. Cardinal Albrecht von Brandenburg, Prince Elector, Archbishop of Magdeburg and Mainz, lived here for three centuries (1514 - 1541) as the highest prince of the church and sovereign prince. During his reign, the town of Halle became the one of the most important centers of the Early Renaissance in Germany with the Moritzburg as the residence of choice for many. Since 1904, the Moritzburg has housed the Municipal Museum of Fine and Applied Arts, founded in 1885, with its valuable collections from the Middle Ages to today.
