Dürrröhrsdorf-Dittersbach

Where romance is at home

Once the castle in Dittersbach attracted German romantics, today the municipality of Dürrröhrsdorf-Ditterbach, in the immediate vicinity of Dresden, is especially popular with hikers. The municipality of Dürrröhrsdorf-Dittersbach has a particularly exposed location due to its proximity to the state capital Dresden and the Saxon Switzerland National Park. The municipality benefits from very good public transport connections. A long-distance cycle path connects the village with Dresden.

 

A network of well-developed hiking trails along the Wesenitz and around the Breiter Stein, the Schöne Höhe or from the romantic Lieblingstal to the Belvedere invite hiking enthusiasts and art lovers alike.

There is plenty to discover. For example, Dittersbach Castle, built in the 16th century, was once a meeting place for the German Romantics of the early 19th century. The owner at the time, art historian and patron Johann Gottlob von Quandt, had a lasting influence on Dittersbach's surroundings by having Germany's first Goethe memorial - the Belvedere - built on the Schönen Höhe and by having the castle park laid out in the Romantic style. Quandt, Goethe, Silbermann, Rietschel, Richter and Semper have all left their mark on Dittersbach and the surrounding area.

There is also no shortage of events in the village. Since 1668, the famous Dittersbach fair has been held annually in the last week of August. The annual park singing, concerts by the singing society, church choir or trombone choir delight numerous visitors every year. The artists' house "Hofmannsche Gut" in Dittersbach invites visitors to exhibitions and concerts, as does the Belvedere Schöne Höhe.
