In the middle of everything, between Kohrener Land and Rochlitzer Muldental, lies the small town of Geithain.
Deep in the south of the district of Leipzig, behind the new lakes, a lovely landscape opens up. Small towns with old town centres, villages sinking into the green and orchards that have become rare in some places dominate the picture.
In the middle of everything, between Kohrener Land and Rochlitzer Muldental, lies the small town of Geithain. With this convenient location, Geithain is the ideal starting point both for excursions and for leisurely discoveries. The travelling hiker, with or without a bicycle, from Chemnitz and also from Leipzig, is here in half an hour. The motorway passes almost directly in front of the city gate.
The city centre, with its well-kept shops, is worth seeing and invites you to go shopping. You will need a longer walk around the city, along the almost completely preserved city wall. Again and again this results in picturesque views and insights. On the north side the path leads through the historic park. This includes the animal enclosure with a playground. The entrance to the city through the old gate on the west side seems like a journey through time. This feeling is also maintained for a while when a guided tour through the underground corridors follows.
Geithain is not sensational, but ideal for a leisurely excursion, an enjoyable shopping experience and a good life.
