Make a holiday rental apartment or villa in Saxony, Germany your home away from home

Saxony is the cultural heart of Germany. Located in the east of the country and sharing a border with the Czech Republic, Saxony has a long and turbulent history which is still celebrated with passion. The architectural prowess and traditional fairs in Saxony are without rival, and if you give in to the magnetism of Saxony tourism and take a holiday rental here, you cannot fail to fall for the magic and charm. Although the countryside is stunning, it is the cities of Saxony that are really impressive, filled to the brim with attractions, fine cuisine and plenty of activity.

Things to do on holiday to Saxony, Germany

Fairs in Saxony have become one of the most celebrated aspects of Saxony tourism. Each year, the calendar is filled to bursting point with fairs, festivals and celebrations from jazz to classics (Bach, Wagner and Schumann were all called Saxony home). Leipzig host the most famous of all Saxony’s fairs, as well as the best opera, theatre and concerts in the whole of Germany. The whole area is also filled with dramatic castles, stately villas and lavish palaces dating back throughout the history of Saxony, which was only re-united with Germany in 1991.

The landscape of Saxony is simply breathtaking. The sheer cliffs which jut out from the forests below are mind-blowing, and the deep ravines provide the setting for some of the most romantic walking holidays in the world. However you decide to explore the Saxon countryside, whether on foot, by bicycle or with a climbing rope, you will never want to leave.

Places to visit on holiday to Saxony, Germany

Dresden is the capital of Saxony. Many of you will know Dresden’s most famous landmark, the Frauenkirche, but there is an incredible amount to see within the city. Located on the banks of the Elbe River, the city is absolutely beautiful, especially in summer. Dresden is Saxony tourism’s jewel in the crown, and the Zwinger Palace, Semperoper and Schloss und Grunes Gewolbe (green vault) are among the most striking attractions. Tours along the Elbe River are a particularly good way to see the city, but walking the streets, nipping into the famous beer halls has many redeeming features too!

It is impossible to explain the unbelievable natural beauty of Saxony’s Ore Mountains to anyone who hasn’t seen them for themselves. The forest carpeted peaks are impressive enough, but it is the sheer sandstone pinnacles that appear sporadically throughout the region that are the most impressive feature. Walking, climbing, horse riding, mountain biking, fishing and climbing holidays could not be taken in a more impressive landscape.

Saxon Switzerland (Sachsische Schweiz) is a stunning national park just outside Dresden. The bizarre geological formations and rich nature make the park a top class destination for walking and climbing holidays or simply relaxing in mind-blowing scenery.

There are plenty of shops, cafes and supermarkets and it's within a few minutes walk of the bus and tram stops. Public transport is frequent and runs every 10 minutes to the centre of Dresden. The listing on the internet is completely accurate and the pictures don't do the place justice either inside or outside. Everything was spotlessly clean and well-equipped throughout. Monika & Dominik were perfect hosts - not intrusive but there if you wanted any help. They both speak excellent English too! We went into Dresden most days as there was so much to do & see.The city itself is superb with something for everyone. I would highly recommend the Dresden City walking tour which was very informative. I wouldn't bother with the hop on hop off bus - your money would be better spent using the public transport system. We were fascinated by the Dresden Panometer. There really are too many things to mention them all.The property is a few minutes from the river where you can cycle or walk for miles. I would highly recommend Dresden as a place to visit and I don't think you would get anywhere better than the Villa Reger. We would definitely visit again.

Upon arrival we were greeted in a friendly manner which made us feel very welcome. The apartment exceeded our expectations, it was very clean, comfortable, spacious with modern decor. The Haus of Lords is situated in beautiful surroundings and was easy for us to explore Saxony by foot or bike. A BIG THANK YOU to Claudia and Craig for your great hospitality and help in making our stay really enjoyable.
