Information

Welcome to the Society Colditz Castle Homepage


Our website aim is to provide an insight of the castle and its heritage and to perhaps prompt you to visit Colditz Castle, in order for you to discover more about its exciting history.

In its 1000 year historic past, the castle has witnessed a diverse range of use: from a Royal Hunting Lodge to a psychiatric hospital. Yet, the castle is more famously known as the notorious German military prison Oflag IVC which held Allied Prisoners of War Officers and Allied prisoners who held significant status during World War 2.

At Colditz Castle you can see the actual escape artefacts and uniforms produced by the ingenious POWs in our Oflag IVC Escape Museum. Guided tours are provided in English, French and German detailing the legendary escapes made by Allied POWs imprisoned here at the castle from 1940 to 1945 - a prison considered by the German military authorities at the time to be escape-proof.

The castle also offers a World War 2 display dedicated to Poland, a souvenir shop selling books, postcards, pens and t-shirts.

Meeting rooms are available for exhibitions, workshops and seminars.

Visit Colditz Castle and enjoy the experience.
