Project AreaSaxon Switzerland District - Osterzgebirge
AcquisitionJune 2010
Size2.70 ha
Biotope Protection (§26 SächsNatSchG)

Importance as a Natural Protected Area:

The area acquired consists of grassland, bordering a forest and the Freital valley district of Weissig. High-stem old cherry trees and individual plum trees can be found over most of the area. Along with the neighbouring land, this natural area forms a buffer zone against the heavily used residential area.


Acquisition by the Saxony State Foundation for Nature and the Environment Nature Protection Fund will facilitate development of the forest edge and the bordering grassland in line with nature protection legislation.


By acquiring the sites, the LaNU Nature Protection Fund has ensured the long term preservation of this area in the context of nature protection.
