Region

gebirge In the southeast corner of Saxony, in the border triangle to Czech Republic and Poland, a diverse middle mountainous region invites to a lighthearted rest. Granite ridges, volcanic hilltops, unique sandstone mountains and picturesque valleys give an impressive face to this scenery. A special jewel is the Zittauer Gebirge. Splendid sandstone rocks and an old grown nature are the particular charm of the smallest German low mountain range.

gebirge The architecture of the Upper Lusatian distinguishes itself by the naturalness of its half timbered houses, a national construction method dating from the 17th to the 19th Century. In their unique configuration it is possible to see the effort and the home love of the Upper Lusatians, a down-to-earth place and hospitable humans. The scenery is rich in cultural and historical places of interest, such as museums / castles, traditional craft and offers varied possibilities for the creation of exciting and eventful holidays. Numerous tourist border crossings allow interesting excursions to the Bohemian castles and palaces, in the Sudeten Mountains and to Prague (100 km).
