Saxony - the German State (Bundesland) is one of the regions in Europe with outstanding architectural, cultural, natural sights. It is located in the far East of Germany, for decades in the 20th century part of "Eastern Europe", which meant suffering from the cold war and communism; without access to the rest of the world.

Things have dramatically changed since the fall of the wall 1989. Saxony is again part of the re-united Germany and a continent where peoples get together, looking forward to the future.

    Very interesting pages, Ingo! Having lived in Saxony for almost 10 years, I was quite surprised how many places I haven't been to or haven't even heard of.

    Great page. I'm planning a three-day trip to Saxony soon, but I'm afraid I won't manage to see even half the places mentioned here.
