The Lößnitzgrund separates Niederlößnitz and Oberlößnitz

The Lößnitzgrund is up to 50 m deep sole valley ( Kerbtal ) of the Lößnitzbach (formerly also Zodenbach or Zottelbach) in the Saxon Lößnitz . The Lößnitzgrund separates the Radebeul districts Niederlößnitz and Kötzschenbroda Oberort (in the west) and Oberlößnitz and Wahnsdorf (in the east) north of Meißner Straße . On the east side there are quarries and rocks, including the Todhübel . The bedrock is syenite . The Lößnitzgrund is part of the fauna-flora-habitat area Lößnitzgrund and Lößnitz slopes .

Lößnitzgrund, Lößnitzbach and Lößnitzgrundbahn

The name, probably derived from the Old Sorbian lěsnica (forest stream), was first mentioned in 1286 in the Kötzschenbroda wine-growing region .

The narrow-gauge Lößnitzgrundbahn ( Radebeul Ost – Radeburg ) runs through the bottom . It is operated by the Saxon Steam Railway Company. The railway is included in the celebrations of the Karl May Festival , which take place every year in the Lößnitzgrund.

Well-known buildings in the Lößnitzgrund include the former inn "Weißes Roß" , the dairy and the Bilzbad .
