Immerse yourself in Dresden’s green side on these 11 circular walks: discover 623 parks and green spaces.

On the edge of the city, you enter Dresden Heath, one of the largest urban forests in Germany. From the verdant banks of the Elbe River, you gaze upon three castles near Loschwitz and cross the Elbe on the Blue Wonder bridge. The slopes of the Elbe Valley have magnificent views over vineyards, with their romantic churches and independent wineries. In Dresden Heath, you hike along narrow paths beside babbling brooks.

The countryside around Dresden is not to be missed either. The hikes take you to historic mills and old farmhouses, past lonely poplar trees, countless lakes, streams, small forests and open fields with magnificent views. So, put on your hiking boots and get going.
