Bad Schandau

Enjoying a striking natural setting between the Elbe River and lush wooded hills and cliffs, the lovely spa town of Bad Schandau is the oldest and most popular resort in Germany's Saxon Switzerland region, known for its iron-rich waters. Bad Shandau's medieval center is lined with enticing shops and cafés, and its botanic gardens and spas provide plenty of opportunity for relaxation and well-being. For a taste of the region, look for the dry white wine called Meissen, a local specialty and Germany's most northerly produced wine.
