A modern, distinctive small town

Groitzsch Museum Tower

Located in the middle of a beautiful floodplain landscape, Groitzsch looks back on a history just shy of 1000 years. Groitzsch is continuing to develop into a modern small town with some interesting characteristics. Groitzsch is rich in history and culture. The Wiprechtsburg fortification ruin, with its integrated open-air stage, is a centre of attraction for thousands of guests, especially in the summer months with its many events.

The 3D cinema with its daily film screenings, the "AZUR" fitness and wellness centre with an indoor pool, and the "Stadtmühle" clubhouse are all good reasons to visit. The district of Großstolpen is an excellent place to stage events links to its modern cultural centre. The immediate vicinity also boasts a bathing lake with a snack bar, barbecue areas and volleyball courts and serves sun-hungry guests on relaxing afternoons.
