Built in 1929 as the first German Holiday center for the working youth, Ottendorf is a unique architectural creation in the superb landscape of Saxon Switzerland. It was created by Kurt Bärbig, one of the most forward-thinking architects of the times. Throughout its history, Ottendorf has always been a place for a frsh start, a place for leisure, learning discoveries and life transformations.
» The building has a long life. It has outlived most of its initial functions and therefore it should now have a different purpose, with beauty being its sole feature that remains unchanged through times. «
