Mountain Nature / Park
Straddling the border of Germany and the Czech Republic, Elbe Sandstone Mountains were carved by erosion and are divided by the Elbe, which flows through them in a narrow valley. The mountains are made up of many microclimates, such as forested areas, plains, and ravines, providing astounding ecological diversity. Visit the national park and make use of the many hiking trails or cycle routes. Rock climbers are lured here by more than 700 summits. An eco-friendly streetcar limits car traffic inside the park.
