  • We were lucky in February probably is really no wonder that's teeming with doing here only as full of people! The prospect is world class! Hard to imagine that a small settlement should have been here so many years ago. A downer: the crowds without end. We were there in February, since not much was going on, but you came here before is like on the funfair, to shoot pictures, standing in line. But what's happening here, when in the summer the Sun is shining? But: for the Bastei can't help. It worth definitely visit them! The view is phenomenal!

  • Were in December 2016 year before Christmas excursion from Prague. Didn't expect to see such beauty. The main heat dress and shoes on a flat, non-slip soles, as crossovers between the elements iron, ice-cold, very slippery. A little priporoshennyj snow gave a special beauty cliffs. In winter, free admission, at other times of the year the guide said that you need to buy tickets as much delight from visiting-see photo!

  • Went to the Bastei bridge with excursion from Prague. First we stopped at the fortress of Königstein, and continue to the bridge. Fickle weather added further paints this wonderful place. First, the Sun came out, and photo were more colorful, and then abruptly went major snow)) the spectacle of inexpressible. Despite fear of heights, was able to go even to the highest belvederes, fear of nonchalance, the beauty of nature prevailed. Sorry, time there have given less than the fortress, but the emotions unforgettable are received. Recommend)

  • 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.
