Mosigkau palace is one of the rare fully preserved examples of rococo in Middle Germany, an object of UNESCO World Heritage. The building, constructed in the middle of the 18th century according to the design made with the participation of the architect of Sanssouci, served as the summer residence of princess Anna Wilhelmina of Anhalt-Dessau. As she wasn’t married, the palace project didn’t include a bedroom for the potential spouse. All male guests lived in separate facilities.
Having lived in the palace of Mosigkau for around 20 years, princess Anna Wilhelmina entrusted for the palace to be turned into a monastery for unwed female aristocrats, which it used to be up until 1945. Today 17 facilities of Mosigkau are occupied by the daily life museum of rococo era. Original furniture, carefully selected by the princess hasn’t been fully preserved but a collection of paintings with the works of Rubens, van Dyck, Bruegel remained. The park at the castle has a conservatory with rare plants that decorate the main alley in summer.
