Bautzen, of cobbled streets and medieval towers
Welcome to Bautzen in Upper Lusatia! Or, as the town is the cultural centre of the Sorbian community in Germany: "Wutrobnje witajće“. Bautzen looks back on a long history and was first mentioned in 1002 as Budusin, or Budyšin in Sorbian.
Today, it is one of Germany’s best preserved medieval towns with a beautiful skyline of 14 medieval towers. Climb up and enjoy fabulous views of the surrounding countryside and explore the old town on romantic alleys and past proud town houses with intricately carved portals.
