MIRIQUIDI - A Forest Called Home (Winter-Edition)

Sports in Saxony

Switching off and unwinding are also part of everyday life and work. And Saxony offers many ways of doing so. ‘Miriquidi – a forest called home’ shows the magical sides of a Saxon winter; it was this that attracted filmmaker Steven Busch and his production company mushroom productions to the UNESCO World Heritage-listed Ore Mountains region. But Saxony is geared up for more than just winter sport: Go climbing in Saxon Switzerland, explore Leipzig’s New Lakeland district by boat, or mountain-bike through Saxony’s forests and peaks. The possibilities are nearly endless. Saxony’s elite athletes are constantly performing well and winning on the world stage; they are the ones causing a stir at an international level and acting as ambassadors to showcase Saxony’s sporting prowess to the world.
