a hidden treasure - The Star of Bethlehem and framework houses


Did you know that Herrnhut in Saxony became the new home of the Moravian church? Come and learn more about their history and traditions and get to know the manufacture where the famous Star of Bethlehem is made.

On this tour you will enchant the small villages and special framework architecture of Lusatia in the eastern part of Saxony - away from the large tourist destinations. It is rich in culture and customs and it is the home of a slavic national minority- the sorbs or wends. And you will enjoy a fascinating countryside!

I am quite sure you will like it very much!
