If pedal power pushes your buttons, Coswig isbest explored via the Elbe Cycle Route and other dedicated cycle paths. If it’s hiking rather biking you’re after, why not discover the natural beauty of Friedewald forest, Spitzberg hill, the Seerosenteich water lily pond and Germany’s most compact central upland region, the Spaargebirge? Or are arts and crafts your thing? At the Folprecht printing workshop, learn how the indigo blueprint process works – and take home some beautiful memento souvenirs for your home. The neo-classical Villa Teresa with its English garden is sure to please, likewise the Karrasburg Museum with living history galore. For mellow moments with a glass of wine, look no further than the wealth of local vineyards. Our recommendation for a summer’s day: Coswig-Kötitz bathing lake – there’s even an en-suite campsite!
