Saxony's winter sports regions

Saxony's highly diversified landscape thrives especially during winter. The snow-covered mountains and fields are the perfect place for winter sports enthusiasts to enjoy some extended runs. Saxony's low mountain ranges are filled with well prepared slopes and excellently groomed cross-country ski tracks, providing the ideal conditions for some skiing and tobogganing fun. The region between the Ore Mountains and Zittau Mountains is bound to have something to suit every visitor's tastes.

The Ore Mountains are one of Germany's most popular holiday destinations. They attract countless hikers in summer, and boast a diverse winter sports region in winter.

Unforgettable fun for the whole family!

Eastern Saxony is home to a very special holiday region: Upper Lusatia - a gem in the tri-border area between Germany, Poland and the Czech Republic. In addition to numerous cultural highlights, it's the enchanting, pristine nature which really attracts holidaymakers. The region's centre of winter sports revolves around the Zittau Mountains Nature Park and the Lusatian Highlands, which offer a wide range of opportunities for Nordic cruising, tobogganing, cross-country skiing and downhill skiing. There's something for everyone!

Saxon Switzerland is not just for hikers and climbers. And winter is when it really turns on the charm. In addition to numerous hiking tracks, which look particularly magical at this time of year, its excellent northern slopes and altitude ensure consistently good conditions for winter sports. An insider tip in southern Saxony, and a little winter holiday paradise!

The evergreen Vogtland transforms into a picture-postcard landscape in winter, when the white snow blankets the hills, valleys and seemingly endless forests. The perfect environment for cross-country skiers. But there's a lot on offer for normal skiers and tobogganists.
