Upper Lusatia

Bautzen, Upper Lusatia

Upper Lusatia is located in the very east of Saxony. It represents the German part of the three-country corner consisting of Germany, Poland and the Czech Republic. The sun first rises in the German town which lies furthest to the east, Görlitz. And the keeping of time in Europe is oriented at Görlitz as the 51st degree of latitude lies in the middle of this town.

The region looks after old handicraft traditions - potters and gingerbread bakers are at home here. A really special tradition is the fish breeding in the largest continuous pond region in Germany. Upper Lusatia is also ideal for cycling and hiking.
