OLDEST HEALTH RESORT IN IDYLLIC LOCATION
Bad Schandau: The centrally located recreational and Kneipp health resort at the National Park is one of the oldest holiday resorts in Saxon Switzerland. Bad Schandau has held the title of Kneipheilbad since 2024, making it the first in Saxony.
Hike, feel good, come back - that is the motto under which Bad Schandau welcomes its guests. Beautifully situated on the Elbe, Bad Schandau is the most centrally located holiday resort in Saxon Switzerland. The small town with its typical medieval centre invites you to take a leisurely stroll through its cafés, restaurants and shops. As the oldest spa town in Saxon Switzerland, it has a great tradition. With classic spa facilities complemented by modern beauty and wellness offers, visitors will find everything for body and soul here.
Postelwitz, for example, with its pretty houses, some of them in the Umgebindestil style, adjoins the town centre in close proximity to the Elbe. And Schmilka, an idyllic little mountain and boatman's village with its two original bridge houses, is also located directly on the sunny right bank of the Elbe and on the paths to the national parks of Saxon Switzerland and Bohemian Switzerland. Porschdorf with the districts of Prossen and Waltersdorf was only incorporated into the town of Bad Schandau in 2012 and stretches with a difference in altitude of up to 130 metres from the Elbe and Lachsbach valleys to the plateaus around the striking Lilienstein.
