The most beautiful cities in Saxony
Baroque architecture directly on the Elbe
Also known as Florence on the Elbe , Dresden is a real beauty and popular travel destination in Germany.
One imposing building stands next to the other. The Semperoper , the Frauenkirche and the Zwinger are particularly well-known .
And not only that! In addition to the historic buildings, there are some really cool locations in Dresden for taking great photos.
A city that is right on trend
According to Securitypology.com, Leipzig has developed more and more into a hip and well-visited excursion destination. And rightly so! The old town is beautiful and the Monument to the Battle of the Nations is just impressive.
And apart from the popular sights, the city has some exciting activities to offer.
We think Leipzig is a cool sock and perfect for a weekend or a day trip.
European Capital of Culture 2025
Chemnitz is more of an insider tip in Saxony and much more beautiful than its reputation would suggest.
The city in Saxony convinces with a beautiful mix of art, industrial culture and lots of nature – not without reason Chemnitz will even be European Capital of Culture in 2025.
Birthplace of Porcelain
When you think of Meissen, you probably think of Meissen porcelain ? This is why the small town in Saxony is world famous.
But Meissen also has a beautiful old town with beautiful streets and some great vantage points.
The Albrechtsburg in Meissen is even the oldest castle in Germany .
Historical old city
Görlitz is best known for its beautiful old town: the buildings come from different eras and are characterized by different architectural styles .
The imposing Peterskirche protrudes from the city center and is the symbol of Görlitz.
The city is located directly on the Polish border – it is worth a detour to our neighbors in Poland .
The most beautiful sights in Saxony
Hiking paradise & impressive rock formations
For a long time, only Leipzig and Dresden came to mind when we thought of Saxony. There are so many other great places to discover!
This definitely includes Saxon Switzerland . For us, the landscape is one of the most beautiful natural travel destinations in Germany and offers wonderful photo opportunities.
In addition to the Bastei Bridge , Saxon Switzerland offers many other great photo opportunities and fantastic views.
There is something magical about this place
If you haven’t heard of the Rakotzbrücke yet, then you should change that immediately.
With its semicircular shape and the reflection in the water , the Rakotz Bridge is an incredibly great photo motif. You can take really great photos here, especially in the morning or evening light.
By the way, the bridge is in the municipality of Gablenz. This is located in the northeast of Saxony – near the border to Brandenburg and the Czech Republic .
Prince Pückler Park
Landscape art in Upper Lusatia
The Fürst-Pückler-Park with the majestic New Muskau Palace is only 7 kilometers away from the Rakotzbrücke .
Before there is any confusion: Yes, there is also an Old Castle. This is right next to it, but it’s not half as photogenic as the new one.
By the way! From Fürst-Pückler-Park you can walk across the border to the Czech Republic in just a few minutes . cool right?
Filming location of “Three Nuts for Cinderella”
Surrounded by water and a beautiful landscape stands the magnificent Moritzburg Castle.
The moated castle is not only the location of the fairy tale film “Three Hazelnuts for Cinderella”, but also contains an impressive collection of hunting trophies .
You can make a wonderful trip here from Dresden – the castle can be reached in less than half an hour by car.
