A total of eight former guard houses are distributed around the building on the island. Moritzburg Palace has achieved international fame as the setting for several fairytale films. These include “Three Hazelnuts for Cinderella” from 1987 and “Cinderella” from 1989. Every year, the Moritzburg Festival with a series of chamber music concerts and the Moritzburg Castle Triathlon take place in the castle grounds.
