Region
Saxony is located in the eastern corner of German bordering Czech Republic and Poland. The Freestate offers various leisure activities for inhabitants and tourists. Delicious grapes ripen on steep mountain slopes above the second-largest river in Germany, the Elbe, along Saxony’s Wine Route – one of Germany`s smallest wine-growing regions. For more than 850 years, vines have been cultivated in this area. Therefore wine has always been an important part of the Saxon Elblands history and it still remains an essential element of the local culture until today. But Saxony is also famous because of it’s ‘white gold’- the porcelain which was invented by Johann Friedrich Böttcher in 18th Century.
In addition, the romantic banks of the river Elbe are perfect for long cycle tours through the delightful countryside in the Elbe Valley. Guests of the region can get to know a unique region with numerous historical towns (e. g. Meißen or Riesa), impressive sights, breathtaking landscapes and the typical regional cuisine connected with the Saxon hospitality. Old churches and castles invite visitors to learn more about the history and to spend some time just relaxing. In the Free State, the roots of the Evangelical Lutheran Church of Saxony are justified in the Christianisation after the founding of the Diocese of Meissen in 968. On that foundation and because of the Reformation, today’s Evangelical Lutheran Church of Saxony is embossed into an Evangelical Lutheran Church.
