The 2015 edition of Dresden's 'abenteuer outdoor', a consumer fair for outdoor recreation and leisure, is taking place between 6 and 8 March. Find inspiration for hiking, cycling, climbing and countless other outdoor activities. Try out all the essential equipment or take advantage of the fun programme of activities on offer for the whole family.
If you love the great outdoors, why not combine your visit to the fair with a trip to the Elbe Sandstone Massif? From Pirna, for instance, you can follow the Malerweg (Painters' Way), one of the most beautiful walks in Germany, across the Saxon Switzerland National Park. A particular highlight is the Bastei rock formation, the park's most famous landmark.
