Inspired by ‘Cinderella’
The German version of “Cinderella” is a small piece of film history and inextricably linked to the magic of Christmas. On many TV stations in Germany, the Czech Republic, Norway and Switzerland, the DEFA cult classic is back on screen every single year on bank holidays. What only a few spectators know: the fairytale castle, which was the setting for magical film scenery for the most beautiful fairy tale film of all time over 40 years ago, is located in Saxony, more precisely in Moritzburg. The myth “Cinderella” is unbroken, even 43 years after the first broadcast on GDR television. Every year, tens of thousands of visitors make their pilgrimage to the regular “Cinderella” exhibitions at Moritzburg Castle.
