Holiday activities,nature,hiking etc.The capital of the Free State of Saxony is situated in the heart of the idyllic Elbe Valley. The city of Dresden, which is famous mainly for its baroque Old Town with the Semper Opera House, the Zwinger and the reconstructed Frauenkirche ("Church of Our Lady"), attracts hundreds of thousands of tourists every year. But not only the world famous sights make the city attractive for visitors of every age but also its variety of cultural and art events. For the young and the young at heart, the trendy New Town district with its almost indefinite number of pubs, bars and music events is the place to be at night. Following the upper Elbe Valley (UNESCO World Heritage Site) from Dresden - the Gate to Saxon Switzerland - passing Pillnitz Castle and Königstein Fortress, one reaches the Elbe Sandstone Mountains in less than an hour. The landmarks of this mountain range are the steep sandstone rocks overlooking the Elbe, which made the national park a mecca for sporty climbers and hikers. But also those who are looking for peace and rest will find their ideal place in one of the spas of Saxon Switzerland.
