    Seen from the water when the sun is setting, Mildenstein castle looks like an old painting, with the castle gentle topping the porphyry rock above the little town of Leisnig. One would not think of the cruel tortures to which prisoners were subjected here, were is not for an exhibition and the prisoners' cells recalling that time.
    The roof construction of the corn loft is a masterpiece of medieval carpentry. From the imposing castle visitors can enjoy a marvelous paniramic view of Leisnig and the valley of the river Mulde.
    Unfortunately, now the tower is under construction and there is no possibility to climb up.
