Tips for your trip to Saxon Switzerland

About the location

The mountain formation is quite unusual for Germany and therefore a very popular travel goal for photographers and tourists in general.


The Saxon Switzerland is a great location to visit when you combine it with a visit in Dresden for example. It's located south near the Czech border and could therefore also be combined with a visit in the beautiful city of Prague, especially when visiting this area by car.
