A small destination in east german Saxony between Leipzig and Chemnitz is the moated manor house Podelwitz at the Freiberg Mulde river. Also suitable as a stage stop for cyclists on the Mulde cycle path or canoe enthusiasts.
A quickly reachable destination from Leipzig in east germany is the hill church Beucha. Hill – church? Near Leipzig? Well, the hill is 20m high, but the quarry underneath makes the sight spectacular. A short circular walk or a concert in the church round off the visit.
A trip to Bad Schmiedeberg with hiking or biking in the Dübener Heide is not only recommended in search of health. The health resort offers peace and tranquility between the Elbe river in the east and the Düben Heath in the surrounding countryside.
The World Heritage Garden Kingdom also includes Oranienbaum Palace and Park from the 17th century. Since then, the orangery houses citrus plants and a garden immerses you in Chinese atmosphere.
Narrow-gauge railroads are rather rare in the German lowlands. Near Mügeln in Central Saxony there was once a large network. What remains is the Doellnitz Railway, the „Wild Robert“, which regularly invites visitors to take steam train rides.
It doesn’t always have to be the highest mountains that make a hiking tour appealing. The Schildberg has some small attractions in its surrounding forest that make an excursion varied, especially with children. The Schildbürger in the town that gives it its name are among them.
Especially for those seeking recreation from the east german Leipzig area, the Hohburger Hills are a quickly accessible excursion destination. Hiking through the mountain forests, discovering traces of volcanoes and ice age glaciers or swimming in the kaolin lake make the short trip worthwhile.
If you travel a lot with your photo equipment, you will soon need a camera bag. In it, everything is protected and clearly stowed what you need so on photo safari.
Baltic Sea and Rügen – for many dream places, white sand, blue waves and unforgettable vacation experiences. But also a bicycle route on Rügen can offer a lot. For short journeys in addition already a small subregion is enough like the particularly beautiful, easily experienced southeast of the large island. A Baltic Sea bike tour has more to offer than just sandy paths 😉
A bike tour in the southern Dahlener Heide can be a welcome change at the weekend – without much stress, on relaxed paths with gentle climbs and descents. Besides nature, the baroque manor house in Dahlen is waiting to be kissed awake from the Sleeping Beauty.
