Oybin is based in Saxony Germany and isn't far from the Polish and Czech border.
As the weather was miserable, we decided on a day out to this town. Stunning scenery on the drive over from Cz Rep. A very quiet town with a few...More
This place is a must visit. High on the top of the hill like a giant beehive rests the ruin of an ancient monastery. Steep walks leed you to the one and only entrance. Worth while the exhaustment. Every turn of the walk opens new...More
That is a beautifull castleruin on the top of the mountain. it is a far way to go up, but you will enjoy that.. On the top there is a nice view on the landscape around the castle, and you can walk around on small...More
