Though Saxony stands as the most industrialized and densely populated state of the former East Germany, it also is full of both natural and man-made wonder. From the weather beaten bizarre peaks of the Elbsandsteingebirge to the hauntingly beautiful cultural center of Dresden, Saxony exudes a grace and authenticity that eludes more famous areas of Western Germany. It is true that the states of the former East Germany are economically strapped compared to their counterparts in the west. While this can give an initial impression of depression, this lack of funds and isolation has perhaps saved the area from rash changes that can often mean the death of the very thing that travelers come to experience: an authentic old world feel. Saxony has plenty of this to offer with far fewer crowds than you will find in more famous areas of this vast country, and at a fraction of the price too. With its close proximity to the Czech Republic and Poland, it has a true eastern feel. This feeling is one that Western Europe seems to lose more of with each passing year. Enjoy it while it lasts.
