Winter Dream Places

Wide views, woodland air, walks: Saxon Switzerland National Park region is a fantastic travel destination. Or rather even two: Saxon Switzerland in summer and Saxon Switzerland in winter. In summer, it is one of Germany’s most popular activity holiday destinations. Millions of hikers, climbers, cyclists, backpackers and paddlers seek their great adventure in the Elbe Sandstone Mountains.

In winter, Saxon Switzerland is an insider tip, a retreat for romantics, foodies and city escapists. Only enthusiasts come here at that time. It is when the rocky landscape shows its wild and mysterious side. With snow falling, the scenery is turned into an unforgettable fairy tale world. Rock formations then look like huge frosted drip castles in the countryside. Hiking in winter is a wonderful way to admire the beauty of dormant nature. Hiking trails and viewing points are mostly for you alone.  And you benefit from exciting event and wellbeing travel packages offered by the region’s most beautiful places and resorts. Winter in Saxon Switzerland – a dream come true!
