Visit the State Chancellery

Welcome to the Saxon State Chancellery

The Saxon State Chancellery and part of the Saxon State Ministry of Environmental Affairs and Agriculture are housed under the golden crown. If you're interested in learning more about the 113-year-old building, we invite you to take one of our tours (approx. 70 minutes). Following extensive renovation and reconstruction work, the building's original look has been restored. Tours provide information on the modern-day uses of the various rooms, the historic symbolism, the building's past uses, and the structure and tasks of the Saxon State Chancellery. Sit at a cabinet desk and listen to the weekly meetings. This journey through time (and the building itself) ends with a visit to the »beehive«.

Tours are available between 9am and 6pm Monday to Friday and only if booked at least 14 days in advance. They are particularly suitable for children in grade 9 and up, as well as for adults. Ideally, group numbers should not exceed 25.

Government District Open Day

On 10th June 2018, the Saxony’s State Government issued an invitation to the 16th »Open Government District«. Around 4,500 interested citizens had a chance to look behind normally closed doors and to obtain information about politics and administration in the Free State.

In previous years, many visitors showed interest in the politics of the Free State and came to the open day. Information stands, and presentation areas provided information to the visitors on a range of topics. The open day also provided an opportunity to take part in a guided tour through the building. With a little luck, you could even chance a look into the State Minister’s office.
