Wine and Culture Tour Saale-Unstrut & Saxony

5-day wine and culture tour in the northernmost and easternmost wine-growing region in Germany


Private guided Wine Journey


A unique cultural landscape has been created on the Saale and Unstrut over a thousand years. Visit Naumburg an der Saale and marvel at the lovingly restored city center. It is also worth taking a look at the Naumburg Cathedral of St. Peter and St. Paul.
Discover the oldest German sparkling wine cellar and largest vaulted cellar in the Saale-Unstrut wine region with a visit to the Naumburg wine and sparkling wine factory. We would like you to enjoy a tasting and familiarize you with the more than 900 year old tradition of the vaulted cellar. Let yourself be enchanted by candlelight in the building of the first German sparkling wine manufacturer, founded in 1824. Surrounded by vines, rolling hills, forests, meadows and floodplains, the small, romantic wine town of Freyburg lies on the banks of the Unstrut. The place is surrounded by terraced vineyards and the associated vineyard houses. We warmly welcome you to the traditional Rotkäppchen-Mumm sparkling wine cellar in Freyburg an der Unstrut. Experience the five rock cellars driven into the mountain, the historic atrium or the impressive cathedral cellar with the largest carved Cuvée barrel in Germany. Visit the Ducal Vineyard, which has been preserved as a baroque vineyard and represents a very special cultural and historical ensemble. Get to know the work of the winemaker in a steep slope vineyard on a guided tour and learn the history and stories about wine from the Saale-Unstrut growing area. Now discover the 55 km long “Saxon Wine Route” between Pirna and Diesbar-Seusslitz, which is also the smallest German wine-growing region. At the adventure winery Schuh you will learn about viticulture on the Elbe on a vineyard hike. Your tour takes you to the heart of the “Saxon Wine Route” in Radebeul. Visit the Hoflössnitz Winery Museum Foundation. Wine has been grown in the Upper Elbe Valley for over 700 years. Climb the Spitzhaus via 365 steps of the Spitzhaus staircase and enjoy a magnificent view over the Elbe Valley to Dresden. A stroll through the historic center of Altkötzschenbroda is highly recommended. As the final highlight of your wine tour, enjoy a culinary wine tasting including a welcome at a champagne reception and an expert cellar tour in the winery in Zadel at the Schloss Proschwitz Prinz zur Lippe winery. Drive to the Saxon State Winery in Wackerbarth Castle. Welcome to the realm of the senses. Welcome to Wackerbarth Castle.
