Radeburg is a town in the district of Meißen, in the Free State of Saxony, Germany. It is situated 19 km east of Meißen, and 18 km north of Dresden. The main tourist attraction is the narrow-gauge Radebeul-Radeburg railway line that connects Radeburg and Radebeul via Moritzburg. The painter and illustrator Heinrich Zille was born in Radeburg.

FKK in June 2016 Radeburg made international headlines by prohibiting nudity in the local naturist resort. The prohibition was ordered because nudity could negatively impact asylum seekers coming to the nearby refugee center. Naturism has been practised there ever since 1905, and naturist say they will not follow this prohibition.
