Landkarte Naturpark Zittauer Gebirge in der Oberlausitz, Sachsen, Deutschland - der ideale Platz für Aktivurlaub

Although it only covers an area of just 50 square kilometers, it has everything to offer with its diverse sandstone mountains, volcanic domes, climbing walls reminiscent of mythological creatures, and picturesque landscapes - the things every outdoor heart treasures.

1000 years of cultural landscape stretch along through nature and along the blue band of the Mandau, a little Saxon and a little Bohemian, but with a lovely flair. The harmony of the Zittauer Gebirge, Olbersdorfer See, historical city of Zittau, and the idyllic villages with their characteristically traditional Oberlausitzer architecture is a signature feature of the nature park.

The main goal of the park is

  • to preserve and develop the cultural landscape.
  • to support sustainable regional development.
  • to foster environmentally friendly tourism.
  • to enhance the natural experience and environmental awareness.
  •  to improve cross-border cooperation.

Euro-region Neisse - Nisa – Nysa

The Neisse - Nisa - Nysa Euro region covers three border regions that are located at the heart of Europe, at the hub of the Czech Republic, The Federal Republic of Germany, and the Polish Republic.

With a total area of 13,254 km, Neisse Euro region makes the culture of these three countries and four languages easily accessible. Nearly 1.6 million people live in the tri-border area in approximately 392 communities. The Euro region landscape in the tri-country area features a hilly and mostly forested lowland in the north, a flattish low mountain area in the south and west (Zittauer Gebirge, Böhmisches Mittelgebirge, Westlausitzer Bergland, Isergebirge, Landeshuter Kamm, Katzbachgebirge), and finally the Riesengebirge, which is home to the Schneekoppe (1602 m), the highest point in the tri-country area. The most significant river is the Neisse, which the Euro region is named after.
