Delightful surroundings

No matter in which direction you exit from Dresden: You will find delightful surroundings everywhere.

You will experience the breath-taking rock formations of Saxon Switzerland when you take a trip on a paddle steamer of the "White Fleet" up the Elbe.
Down the river, Meissen with its world-renowned porcelain factory is situated in the midst of scenic vineyards. To the west, the Erzgebirge beckons with its folk art products, tourist attraction mines and winter sport options.

Off to the east, Upper Lusatia can be visited with its idyllic villages that have a somewhat Sorbian appearance about them and also the 1000-year-old city of Bautzen with its captivating old town.
