Welcoming Wilsdruff will leave you wondering why you didn’t make the trip earlier. Uniquely-named, the town is probably a corruption in local dialect of the original Wilandesdorf, named after Wiland, who led a group of settlers into the area in around 750 AD. A joy to behold – in fact a feast for eyes and ears alike – are the set of ruby red glass chimes housed in the old town hall tower. Our recommendation: Wilsdruff is a convenient base for exploring the Tharandt Forest, the river valleys of the Wilde Sau and the Triebisch. Such beautiful countryside!
