Welcome to Saxony, a winter wonderland!

A pristine blanket of snow slowly and soothingly descends upon Saxony's landscapes. The cold, crystal-clear winter air prickles people's cheeks. Gentle rays of sun makes everything glow in an almost mysterious fashion and glitter magnificently. Winter has announced its arrival in Saxony with splendour.

The first snowflakes mark the start of the best time of year for winter sports enthusiasts. From the Zittau Mountains to Vogtland, the various skiing and sports regions are the perfect place to engage in new adventures in the snow. Kilometres of cross-country ski runs are also a source of fun for skiers, snowboarders, bobsledders and even walkers, while ice-skaters can glide smoothly across the lakes and skating rinks. You may even discover the odd ice fisher at a frozen pond.

Be captivated by the beauty of nature and the wide range of sports options! Be it for a few hours or a couple of adventurous days, the next few pages contain all the important information you need on Saxony's winter holiday regions.
