Moritzburg is a municipality in the district of Meißen in Saxony, Germany, between Meißen (Meissen) as early centre of Saxony and the today's capital Dresden. It is most famous for its Baroque castle, Schloss Moritzburg.

The village became a market in 1675. The Saxon state stud has been located in Moritzburg since 1828. In 1884 a narrow gauge railway, the Radebeul-Radeburg line, was built connecting Moritzburg to the district capital Radebeul and Radeburg. The German painter Käthe Kollwitz lived at the invitation of Prince Ernst Heinrich von Wettinin the Rüdenhof in Moritzburg from 1944 until her death on 1945-04-22 . In 1995 a small museum was opened in the Rüdenhof.
