South of Dresden, the relief rises steadily from the Elbe valley to the Osterzgebirge mountains, divided by narrow river valleys of the Müglitz and Weißeritz. In between, panoramic heights and mountains rise around Maxen and Kreischa, as well as the wide wooded areas between Dippoldiswalde and Tharandt. After Meissen, the valleys on the left bank of the Elbe are among the most beautiful hiking destinations, especially in spring.
