Leisure Time - You can always be active

There are active recreational activities to suit every taste in Saxon and Bohemian Switzerland – quite apart from the hiking trails, climbing routes and cycle paths.

Beach volleyball


The region's numerous beach volleyball courts don't just provide a great deal of fun; they also feature picturesque backdrops. For example, the beach volleyball court in Königstein, right next to the grassland by the River Elbe. Beach volleyball courts can also be found at outdoor swimming pools or at the Pirna-Copitz recreational centre.
