Elbe Sandstone Mountains, Bad Schandau

4.6
#2 of 9 in Nature in Saxony
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.

  • Hiking a bit, a little bit the soul leave, where doing that better than in "pure nature". I appreciate this free time, which she can refuel me. I enjoy the beauty and the peace and quiet here. I was under the week here, accordingly quiet I could explore the surroundings. With the Kirnitzschtalbahn, direction Lichtenhain waterfall we started of bad Schandau. By out it is not far, until to the first station I hike the "cowshed" over next to the Idagrotte and run stairs continue to the strong. I spend a great day here, one of the most beautiful hiking areas I've ever been really.

  • Who loves the nature, is out there happy, smells like forest, touching rocks, discovered winding canyons and breathtaking views enjoys here is more than right. The Saxon Switzerland has so much to offer, all to write down certainly beyond the scope of a review. Best you pass even once, rents are affordable accommodation and explores the nature and rock spectacle. It is also one of the world's finest sport climbing areas. I always again happy to come here.
