Saxony travel guide

4.6
Churches · Landmarks · Art Museums
Saxony features a long history of independence as a separate kingdom. It is a fascinating mix of medieval castles, cobbled town squares, Gothic churches, lavish palaces, and old-fashioned steam trains. The people who live here have a strong sense of distinctness from other Germans. This mainly stems from the region's history of independence and its large population of ethnic Sorbs (a Slavic people). But the residents are as friendly and warm as they are proud of their cultural and natural riches. Saxony is home to several high-profile cities full of things to do. It also contains a sprawling countryside dotted by neat vineyards, sun-drenched parks, rugged sandstone cliffs, lush meadows, and picturesque hillside villages. Still relatively undiscovered by foreign travelers, the area outside Saxony's urban centers remains one of the least-explored regions of the country. Venture deep into this multifaceted land to soak up the local culture. You'll be able to enjoy sightseeing at the various cultural and natural attractions unhindered by large tourist crowds.
