Whether it’s architecture, art or culture of remembrance – the city of Bautzen has it all. Numerous local museums bring to life for the visitor the long history of the city and its inhabitants. The splendour of our medieval fortified towers and the churches of Bautzen are a highlight of any visit.

More recent history with its sometimes tragic and inhumane twists and turns is also evident in, among other places, the Bautzen Prison Memorial. Friends of the fine arts will find suitable destinations for a visit in the galleries of the city. The German-Sorbian Folk Theater and the Sorbian National Ensemble provide an insight into the unique German and Sorbian culture of the region.
