5/5 based on 160+ 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.

  • We were by the 24.09 up 25.09.16 in the Elbe sandstone mountains. It is so beautiful that can be that little in words. The canoe trip on the upper lock, the way then, the hiking trails, the bastion, bad Schandau, Königstein and Schmilka, you have to see it. It's indescribably beautiful! Everything goes well with dog...

  • Saxony near the Czech border, the Saxon Switzerland region offers a unique landscape. Especially do not miss the Bastei, an extraordinary view of the gorges shredded the Elbsandsteingebirge (sandstone mountain).
