Saxony- the sophisticated state that unites 1,000 years of cultural history and scenic beauty. Top-class art and culture, world-famous traditional handicrafts and modern manufacturing await you. The musical landscape of Saxony is unique in Germany. The cities in particular hold great appeal. Stately castles, palaces and gardens are part of the cultural heritage. Saxony impresses with historic steam trains and a long history of automobile manufacturing.

The musical landscape of Saxony is second to none in Germany and covers everything from instrument building to fine performances in famous venues. Famous composers like Bach, Schumann, Mendelssohn and Wagner were either born or lived in Saxony. Dresden has some of the best art collections in the world while Leipzig stands for cutting-edge contemporary art.

High-quality wellness and health holidays are connected with health resorts rich in tradition. Together with an unmistakable nature, active and family holidays are highly appreciated. In large parts of Saxony offering handicapped accessible travel and lodging options is perfectly natural.
