Babisnau poplar

View over Dresden from natural heritage site

From the Babisnau poplar you have a great panoramic view over the whole Elbe valley near Dresden, from Radebeul to Pirna, beyond the other "edge of your plate" to West Lusatia, Saxon Switzerland and the Eastern Ore Mountains. The view in southern direction over the Kreischaer basin to the Wilisch is very idyllic.

The Babisnau poplar itself was planted in 1808 and can be seen from many places in Dresden as a prominent silhouette on the southern horizon. It is a natural monument with a trunk circumference of about 5 m and a height of about 17 m. A viewing platform was erected next to the poplar.

Legend has it that the poplar blossomed when the end of a war was near, e.g. in 1870 and 1918. The blossom in 1943 was even mentioned by Victor Klemperer in his work.

Arrival by public transport is only possible as far as Goppeln (bus line 75 from Dresden city centre and regional buses). directions_railway directions_bus

Afterwards a nice walk of about 2.5 km is waiting for you. Since it leads through the valley of the Lockwitzbach, the altitude difference should not be underestimated. You can download a route a little off the road here.

By car you can park at the road north of the poplar and then walk for about 500 m.
