Elbe Sandstone Mountains, Bad Schandau

(5/5 based on 170+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • In addition to the many tourist destinations and main routes, there are many beautiful routes with varying degrees of difficulty. You can go Brooks leisurely upward or downward, but also set aside and is then on steep paths, stairs, or on narrow ridges. Spectacular views guaranteed the altitude between 120 and 500 may seem the most. Sometimes it goes up 50m at a few meters distance. Gastronomically, there are some great restaurants, but also much mediocrity. Dresdner has his meals himself and eats his Bemme in a beautiful location, others use the gastronomic offerings. There are many lodgings and hotels, also by Dresden S Bahn which is going great. Who was once there, come back. Just please do not from January to March, as almost everything has to. Day trip is still possible.
