Saxon Switzerland National Park
October 26, 2012 by staff
Saxon Switzerland National Park, The Saxon Switzerland National Park (German: Nationalpark S?chsische Schweiz), is a National Park in the German Free State of Saxony near the capital city of Dresden. It covers two areas of 93.5 km² (36.1 mi²) in the heart of the German part of the Elbe Sandstone Mountains which is called the Saxon Switzerland (German: S?chsische Schweiz).
The National Park adjoins the Bohemian Switzerland National Park in the Czech Republic.
The National Park is the centre of a natural area of almost 710 km² (274 mi²). This region is called Saxon Switzerland and is cultivated by humans in many places. Some smaller towns and villages like Bad Schandau or K?nigstein in the district of S?chsische Schweiz are part of this region.
The core area of the National Park has a quiescent area of 40% and is covered almost completely by forest. The status of National Park, which grants the highest natural protection in Germany, was established in 1990. It lies – in two geographically separate areas – within the district of S?chsische Schweiz-Osterzgebirge.
