Saxony is located in the northeastern part of Germany bordering Czech Republic and Poland. The main cities of Dresden and Leipzig are architectural and musical destinations without parallel and easily accessible by car or train from Berlin and Prague. Whether you are discovering the treasures of August the Strong in Dresden or on the music trail in Leipzig following in the footsteps of Bach, Mendelssohn and Wagner, there is a constant sense of discovery and beauty. Germany’s Christmas market treasures are made in Saxony’s Ore Mountains and Meissen’s workshops produce innovative world-class porcelain. Zwickau and Chemnitz are following Leipzig’s model of staying on the cutting-edge of the art scene.
