Albrechtsburg Castle, Meissen

Albrechtsburg Castle is an original piece of 15th-century secular architecture in Germany. It deserves the name of palace rather than castle. To the south the building is connected to a Gothic cathedral, the two buildings forming an imposing complex on a hill above the Elbe.
