Tharandt is a municipality in Saxonymarker, Germanymarker, situated on the Wei├čeritzmarker, 9 miles southwest of Dresdenmarker, on the Dresden-Reichenbach railway.

It has a Protestant Church, a hydropathic establishment, and the oldest academy of forestry in Germany, founded by Heinrich Cotta in 1811 together with its arboretum, the Forstbotanischer Garten Tharandtmarker. In 2002 a severe flood destroyed much of the academy buildings and the library with some of its more than 500 years 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 (tropical) forestry, resource management and sustainable land use.

Tharandt is a favorite summer resort of the people of Dresden, one of its principal charms being the magnificent beech woods which surround it.
