  • The well-known bastion in the vicinity of Dresden impressed really. And absolutely affordable parking €3 per day, bus transfer €1.5 even the obligatory snacks convince by humane prices of only Downer... It is already heavily overrun

  • Thanks to the foggy weather and pre-season, it was not crowded - overlooking the ELB-on / down is just great. Even when the weather is :-)

  • Stunning, which is simply impossible to see! I want to be there indefinitely! It is a pity that the pictures can convey nothing! Not worth coming with young children, i.e., to it's not safe.

  • Stunning views. The small additional Tour for 2€ of the firmer Fortress grounds is worth it for the amazing views. The Bridge is free otherwise. Very organized Shuttle and bis Service available
  • Beautiful view. It is said it takes 2 hours to get up from kurort rathen and down. But if you are planning to stop to enjoy the view, to have a rest, to drink tea on top of the hill it takes about 4 hours for the whole trip up and down.
  • Awesome place! Don't just go on the bridge, go on the hiking trails on that area, they are the best and have the best views.
  • This is an excellent trekking experience and one of the must do things if you're going to Dresden.
  • Really cool place to visit. Might be a good idea to go in the afternoon when its not so crowded.
