The Saxon capital, 15 km from Coswig, combines the splendour of a baroque royal seat with the buzz of a modern city: museums, theatres, concerts, sports venues and the City Beach, shopping streets or the trendy Neustadt district.
The Saxon Switzerland national park region stretches along the Elbe all the way to Bohemia. Its picturesque, rugged landscape with its fascinating flora and fauna, with castles, churches, palaces and gardens, festivals and the Felsenbühne open-air theatre make it a paradise for any holidaymaker.
Picturesque Meissen, with its narrow lanes and historic townhouses, is dominated by the venerable cathedral and the Late Gothic castle rising high above the town. The Meissen State Porcelain Manufactory in Triebischtal attracts visitors from all over the world.
