Our tips for your vacation

Admittedly, Elsterwerda is not in the middle of a well-known tourism destination such as Saxon Switzerland, the Saxon Elbland or the emerging Lusatian Lake District.

But maybe that's exactly what makes our region so attractive. A quiet landscape where nature lovers get their money's worth. Interesting exhibitions and projects for those interested in technology. The proximity to major art and cultural sites such as Dresden or Meissen. Or the surrounding area with its numerous gems to be discovered.

Let yourself be inspired, we will be happy to give you the appropriate tips.
