Saxony is a free state in eastern Germany. The capital Dresden was severely damaged in World War II and has almost completely been restored. This state is home to a unique mountainous region reminiscent of Switzerland.
Swiss Saxon has a beautiful rock formation with the remains of a bastion on top. Here, on the Bastei Pirna, predatory knights once housed. From this point, the many tourists nowadays have a beautiful view of the surrounding area.
It took a while for Dresden to lick her wounds from World War II. But nowadays the city looks like it was never destroyed. It is without doubt one of the most beautiful cities in Germany.
The mining town of Freiberg owes its fame to the fact that silver was discovered here. The city came virtually intact from the Second World War and, unlike many other cities in this area, did not require large-scale restoration. Freiberg is also the Partner City of Delft.

Sometimes you are lucky when you are in the right place at the right time. We were lucky enough to be able to attend a Tractor party in Struppen near Pirna. The village festival really still breathes the atmosphere of the former East Germany, partly thanks to the Trabantjes.
