Tharandt is a municipality in Saxony, Germany, situated on the Weißeritz, 9 miles southwest of Dresden.
It has a Protestant Church, a hydropathic establishment, and the oldest academy of forestry in Germany, founded as the Royal Saxon Academy of Forestry by Heinrich Cotta in 1811, together with its arboretum, the Forstbotanischer Garten Tharandt. In 2002, a severe flood destroyed many of the academy buildings and the library, including some of its more-than-500-year old books. The academy was rebuilt and today has about 650 students and is famous for its long traditions of educating students from all over the world in forestry, resource management and sustainable land use.
