This year the Sandstone & Music Festival in the Saxon Switzerland region of eastern Germany celebrates its 22nd birthday. From 2 February to 30 November 2014 there'll be numerous events taking place that unite music, culture and nature. Venues include baroque gardens, venerable old churches and castles.
Saxon Switzerland is a national park south-east of Dresden characterised by bizarre rock formations, deep valleys, tabletop mountains and gorges. There's so much to do here, from hiking to taking a boat trip along the river Elbe in an old paddle steamer.
