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.
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).
