Breathtaking nature

Saxony is blessed with beautiful landscapes, some of them with a dramatic and some of them with a gentle character. Best known is the Saxon Switzerland National Park, a stunning landscape that has inspired artists and tourists alike. But there are many other landscapes which are quintessentially Saxon. Most of them are a paradise for hikers and cyclists but they can be accessed very easily without much of a physical effort, too. And everywhere, one can meet the Saxons who are fond of the outdoors.
