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.

Comfort in Leipzig

5 of 5
Our 5 week visit to Leipzig was very comfortable and enjoyable thanks to Christa’s apartment. We have stayed in many HomeAway apartments before but this one was by far the best outfitted for travellers. There was more than enough space to put clothes, maps, food items, etc with many open areas to relax and plan outings. The kitchen was perfectly outfitted with all the mod cons. There’s even plenty of parking space if you have a car. Christa was a gem to work with and all questions and details were quickly and easily worked out. Leipzig is a growing city and it reflects in the neighbourhood. It’s one of transition and change. Many buildings are being restored to their original beauty and we have no doubt the area will be transformed in the near future. It’s been our privilege to visit many lovely places in Germany and this one lives up to the description and expectations. We would highly recommend this apartment for your next stay in Leipzig.

Perfect apartment in beautiful location

5 of 5
We stayed for a week. We received a warm welcome from the owners who were helpful throughout. (They were also very patient with my attempts at speaking German!) The apartment was very clean and comfortable with everything we needed. The pretty garden and pool was also bonus. The view from the balcony was lovely. The town has a supermarket, wonderful bakery, butcher and farm shop a 5 min walk away. We were easily able to get to central Dresden, we rented a car so we could also travel to Prague, however, the public transport was excellent. We enjoyed staying in this beautiful location and will recommend to family and friends. Thank you to Gisela and Bernd.
