The 224 tourist information offices in Saxony’s municipalities act as welcoming, competent points of contact for visitors.
The whole wide world packed into 18,416 square kilometers
Lakes, mountains, cities, culture, even beaches, family-friendly accommodation ... an impossible dream? Saxony has everything a traveller’s heart could desire. Where to begin?
You will find plenty of reading matter in the brochures published by Tourismus Marketing Gesellschaft Sachsen on a wide range of topics extending from family accommodation to cultural highlights or excursion guides. There is, of course, also a lot of inspiration to be found online, notably on the website “Erlebe dein Sachsen”. “Simply Saxony” not only offers inspiration for excursions but also enables anyone planning to visit to get to know the state and its people before they arrive.
There’s no lack of inspiring ideas or destinations. But the most important thing is that Saxony and its people put a spring in your step: you’ll never tire of the place or have enough of the sights. Staycations are unlikely to fall out of fashion when the coronavirus crisis comes to an end. One reason is sustainability and a trend towards making shorter or slower trips: the idea that the grass is just as green on your own side of the fence is coming back into vogue for the tourism industry.
