Zittau is a city in the south east of the Free State of Saxony, Germany, close to the border tri-point of Germany, Poland, and the Czech Republic. undefinedZittau Travel Guide
Zittau is served by the regional Ostdeutsche Eisenbahn GmbH (ODEG) which links Zittau to Görlitz and Cottbus where connections can be made to Dresden and the rest of Germany.

How to find us

By car

You reach Zittau via the E 40 (European speedway). Coming on the A 4 motorway from Dresden take the Bautzen-West exit onto the B 6 heading for Löbau. Continue on the B 178 in the direction of Zittau.

By train

Trains run frequently from/to Dresden, (Cottbus-) Görlitz and the Czech city Liberec. The Sachsen Ticket is good for this train trip from Dresden. Coming from Görlitz you would buy a ticket of the regional transportation network ZVON. Please note that for the same price you can also buy the EURO-Neisse-Ticket which is valid in the neighboring regions of Poland and the Czech Republic (e.g. beyond Liberec into the Jizera mountains). Any ZVON ticket is valid on the buses, too.

By plane

The international airport is located in Dresden-Klotsche, about 120 km from Zittau.


The next airports are in undefinedLiberec

and in undefinedPrague in Czech Republic


You get usually a free access to internet in your hotels, in the University rooms you have free Wi-Fi  access to  eduroam net because of theUniversity of Applied Sciences Zittau/Goerlitz is a member of the European Confederation (a confederation of autonomous roaming services)like the most European Universities. Please, ask in your own University how to install this access on your laptops and smartphones.
