Wehlen with the districts of Pötzscha, Zeichen and Wehlen village

 

Wehlen, which spans to the left and right of the River Elbe, is one of the best-known holiday resorts in Saxon Switzerland and offers a unique small town flair.

 

Wehlen, with its history spanning back over 700 years, is one of the smallest towns in the Free State of Saxony and is one of the most important tourist attractions in the Elbe Sandstone Mountains; and with good reason. Lovingly known as "Wehlstädt‘l" by locals, the town lies in the heart of Saxon Switzerland and is ideal for those seeking recuperation thanks to its sheltered location deep in the Elbe Valley.

 

The special appeal of the town is also due to its picturesque houses, which nestle up against the wooded hillsides on both banks of the Elbe. Besides the castle ruins, the market place, which is home to the market church, and the gardens are also worth visiting. In addition, the wide Elbe promenade invites visitors to enjoy a leisurely stroll.

 

Wehlen is also ideally situated as a starting point for walks into the romantic rocky world of Saxon Switzerland. However, those looking to discover Saxon Switzerland in mini format are also in the right place in Wehlen. The miniature park "The mini Saxon Switzerland" in Wehlen village depicts the main attractions of the entire Elbe Sandstone Mountains in true-to-life replicas. And those who climb aboard a steamer belonging to the oldest and largest fleet of paddle steamers in the world in Wehlen, can easily reach Dresden, Meißen and Bad Schandau.

 

Wehlen can also be reached by train, by car or by bike on the Elbe Cycle Route, which runs from the Czech Republic to Hamburg. The parts of town situated on both sides of the River Elbe are connected via a ferry.
