Seifhennersdorf – Varnsdorf Border Crossing

Seifhennersdorf is a town in the district Görlitz, in the Free State of Saxony, Germany. It is situated on the border with the Czech Republic, and the Czech towns of Rumburk and Varnsdorf lie across the border to the north-east and south of town.

Varnsdorf is a town in the Ústí nad Labem Region of the Czech Republic. Following the end of World War II, its ethnic German population was mostly expelled to Germany, and the official spelling of its name was changed from the German “Warnsdorf” to the Czech “Varnsdorf”. In 2006 passport controls were still in place.
