The Dresdner Heide is a large forest area in Dresden. It is the most important local recreation area in the city and is used for forestry. About 6133 hectares of the Dresdner Heide are designated as a landscape protection area Dresdner Heide (d16); This makes it one of the largest urban forests in Germany in terms of area. While predominantly agricultural land borders in the east, the heath is surrounded in all other directions by districts and towns of Dresden and in the southwest reaches as far as the Dresden suburban belt. The landscape typical of a heather with a strongly pronounced layer of shrubbery and heather is rather non-existent in the Dresden Heath, which is why it is not a heather landscape, at least in the narrower sense.Location of the Dresdner HeideView from the Dresden Heath on Mordgrund over the Johannstadt and Strehlen
In its geology and in the flora and fauna, the forest area marks a transition area between the North German lowlands and the low mountain ranges. With the exception of small areas, it is assigned to the West Lusatian hills and mountains and thus represents one of the westernmost foothills of the Sudetes Large areas of mixed forest characterized by dune-like sand deposits from the Saale and Elster glaciers. Its history as an electoral hunting ground and the intensive cultural imprinting and cultivation is based on the proximity of the Dresdner Heide to the inner city of Dresden.more: de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dresdner_Heide
