Klotzsche is a borough (Ortsamtsbereich) of Dresden, Germany. It consists of four quarters (Stadtteile):

The borough is located north of the Elbe Valley and the Dresden city centre, on the western rim of the Lusatian Plateau. It borders the extended Dresden Heath woodlands on the Prießnitz river in the south and east, and the area of Moritzburg in the northwest.

Klotzsche hosts the major Dresden weather station and the international airport of the city. It contains some historic villa areas but is not an extraordinary quarter of preference to live in. The northern part comprises the major industry locations of Silicon Saxony, such as GlobalFoundries Fab 1 and Infineon Technologies. Klotsche can easily be reached from the city center with the tram number 7, commuter trains and urban and suburban bus lines.
