Travel Insider Tips for Sebnitz

Sebnitz (IPA: [zɛpnɪts]) is a town in the Sächsische Schweiz-Osterzgebirge district, in the Free State of Saxony, Germany.

Sebnitz (IPA: [zɛpnɪts]) is a town in the Sächsische Schweiz-Osterzgebirge district, in the Free State of Saxony, Germany.

The town of Sebnitz lies in the valley of the River Sebnitz and its side valleys between 250 and 460 m above sea level between the mountains of Saxon Switzerland and the Lusatian Highlands. Topographically the town itself lies in the West Lusatian Upland, but lies right on the border with the Upper Lusatian Highlands. Because the natural region of Saxon Switzerlands is also very close by, the countryside around the town is very varied. The local hill of Sebnitz ist the Tanzplan which is on Czech territory.

The municipality consists of the town Sebnitz itself, Schönbach (joined 1935), Hainersdorf (joined 1920), Hertigswalde (joined 1950) und Hinterhermsdorf (joined 1998). Hinterhermsdorf is situated about 5 km to the south-east of Sebnitz. Being separated from the remainder of Sebnitz by the municipality of Kirnitzschtal, it forms an exclave.
