History

The oldest structure of the village is the mill (Mittelndorfer Mühle), built in 1518.

Geography

Mittelndorf is located in the mountain range of Saxon Switzerland, not too far from the river Kirnitzsch. It lies on the S154 road, which links Bad Schandau and Sebnitz, between the villages of Altendorf and Lichtenhain. It is 8 kilometres (5.0 mi) from Sebnitz and Bad Schandau, 25 kilometres (16 mi) from Pirna, 27 kilometres (17 mi) from Děčín (in the Czech Republic) and circa 50 kilometres (31 mi) from Dresden.

Transport

Mittelndorf has got a rail stop on the Bautzen–Bad Schandau railway, situated in the forest close to the village. This stop has a rare peculiarity for a train station situated on a normal national rail line: it has not a road to reach it but a simple forest trail. A similar thing in Europe could be found, for example, in the stations of Kloster Marienthal (Engers-Au line, Germany); Pertosa, in southern Italy; or Corrour, in Scotland.

The village is also served by the suburban tramway line "Kirnitzschtalbahn" Bad Schandau–Lichtenhainer Wasserfall, with the stops of Mittelndorfer Mühle (at the mill) and Forsthaus, not too far from Mittelndorf.
