City culture, wine growing and porcelain manufacture in the cradle of Saxony

The Saxon Elbland unites landscape, art and culture in a fascinating way. Renowned cities fit into the riverscape of the Elbe, shaped by vineyards.

Whoever spends his holidays here discovers the cradle of Saxony. The 1000-year-old city of Meissen, once royal seat, is world-famous for its Meissener Porcelain. Torgau is considered one of the most beautiful German Renaissance towns. It owes its epithet "Luther City" to the life and legacy of Martin Luther. The church of the castle Schloss Hartenfels was, for instance, the first German protestant church that was consecrated by Luther. In Radebeul you meet Karl May. Dresden impresses with art and culture of international renown and famous buildings like the Zwinger, the Semper Opera and the Frauenkirche (Church of Our Lady). On the Sächsischer Weinwanderweg (Saxon Wine hiking trail) along the Saxon Wine Road wine connoisseurs acquire a taste for centuries-old wine growing tradition. Whoever cycles along the cycle path Elberadweg, is on the road on one of Germanys most famous cycling paths.
