Top 5 travel tips for your holiday in Saxony: Unique destinations and places of interest
1. Nature lovers cannot pass by the Erzgebirge. It stretches from Saxony to the Czech Republic and offers its visitors numerous national and nature parks that leave nothing to be desired by nature lovers and active holidaymakers. In summer you can explore the untouched nature on foot or by bike. In winter, one of the most popular ski resorts in Germany awaits you here. The special climate of the low mountain range ensures extensive snowfall and cold winters every year - ideal for winter sports.
2. In the very south of Saxony, where the Erzgebirge slowly merges into the Elstergebirge, lies the region Vogtland, which is very interesting for tourists. Here architecture lovers will find the Göltzschtal Bridge, the largest brick bridge in the world. With 29 arches, this viaduct is considered a landmark of the Vogtland and is one of the oldest witnesses of railway history in Germany.
3. One of the most popular excursion destinations in Saxony is the Oybin, Zittauens most famous mountain with about 514 meters height. The ascent takes 15 minutes and during this time you will pass the mountain church, which is well worth a short look. A small detour also takes you through a narrow rock cut, the so-called Knight's Gorge. A castle and monastery ruin awaits you on the mountain, making this destination the most romantic and at the same time the most mystical in Saxony.
4. Make sure you take a ride on a historic narrow-gauge railway and let it take you 100 years back. These narrow-gauge railways run all over Saxony on lines that are still in good condition today! With a speed of about 30 km/h you drive through the area and can also enjoy the view of nature.
5. Visit the crown of the Erzgebirge, as Augustusburg Castle is also called. The castle on the Schellenberg is visible from afar and represents a cultural and architectural showpiece that has lots of highlights to offer. Many museums and a bird of prey show await you.
