From Pirna to Diesbar-Seußlitz, the Saxon Wine Route winds alongside the River Elbe through a picturesque landscape with romantic little winegrowers’ villages, grand palaces, wonderful parks and beautifully located winegrowing estates like Wackerbarth Castle, Proschwitz Castle or Hoflößnitz. Winegrowing on the Southern hill slopes of the upper Elbe valley has more than 850 years of tradition.
Especially the parts of the Saxon Wine Route around Diesbar-Seußlitz, in the Spaar Mountains near Meißen or in the vineyards of Radebeul as well as the area from the „Blue Wonder“ – the most famous bridge over the River Elbe in Dresden – until Pillnitz are worth an intensive visit. Today, one of Germany’s smallest and northernmost wine-growing area comprises approximately 430 hectares of vineyards.
Tip: The Saxon Wine Route can be explored by bicycle, too.
