The old and the new in Saxony

The region of Saxony is brimming with cultural hotspots, 16th-century frescoes and inspiring history. The German State Museum of Art and Culture is housed in a real-life castle in Oldenburg, whilst neighboring Visbek boasts megalithic graves from the Stone Age amongst its attractions, or feel your jaw drop in front of the towering Gothic cathedral of Bremen. Travelers can hop on the bike sharing scheme of baroque Dresden, and cycle through one of the world's most cultural cities, drinking in the Renaissance beauty or tour the city of Leipzig exploring its many ties to Bach. And don't miss out on a trip to the awesome Saxon Switzerland National Park.

Things to do

Saxony's magnificent art collections

There's an opportunity to see magnificent European art while in Saxony. Housed in the grand duke's castle, the State Museum of Art and Culture in Oldenburg boasts a collection of over 30,000 exquisite paintings and artifacts, from priceless Old Masters to ingenious Classic Modernism. Travelers staying in Saxony vacation rentals can feel like royalty with a trip around Dresden's Zwinger Palace, which is a fine example of late baroque architecture. After, why not take a trip on a paddle steamer up the river Elbe? In Leipzig, meanwhile, kids and adults alike will be impressed with the city's zoo, where hundreds of different animals reside.

Activities

Climb the old hills of Saxony

Home to the Elbe Sandstone Mountains, the Saxon Switzerland National Park is perfect for rock climbing. Located just an hour outside Dresden, you can find many of Saxony's vacation rentals in a convenient – some might say a stone's throw – distance for tackling the cliffs and crags. The sheer diversity of the aeons-old rock face offers climbers unique natural experiences, and present over 17,000 free climbing routes. If you've got experience, nothing will beat conquering a peak and seeing the Saxon world sweep before you. And if you're beginning, learn from local experts how to master the Elbe sandstone rock.

Weather

The magic of the Saxony seasons

If you're looking to book a Saxony vacation rental in the winter, then pack those wooly sweaters and thick gloves as it's going to get cold. You'll rarely see the mercury rise above freezing in the daytime, and at night it can plunge further. However, the region is almost guaranteed a beautiful snowfall at this time of year, so Saxony is the place to come for a winter wonderland Christmas to awe the family. In the summer, the ice melts away for sunshine and temperatures reaching into the 70s.

Natural features

Breathe in the nature of Saxony

Saxony is an ancient land of rolling hills and green valleys. You can see the cloud-topped peaks of the Ore Mountains looming to the south, and the Elbe Sandstone Mountains rearing to the east. In the forests outside Dresden, travelers can find wild boar, deer and hares roaming freely, a sight to kickstart imagination in any adventurer's heart: whether they're a child's age or older. And if you travel to the far north you'll find the East Frisian islands off the North Sea coast, a UNESCO World Heritage site, where it's possible to spot wild birds, and seals sunbathing amongst the mudflats.
