  • In Germany, near Dresden, is a National Park Saxon Switzerland ". This is a unique place! Moving "path of artists", getting off at the belvederes with mesmerizing beauty. Picturesque scenery-rocks in the Valley of the river Elbe, on the banks of the Elbe is a small German town. Fabulously fantastic. How many years it took nature to create such beauty. Many viewpoints and different is good, but what unites them is a picturesque landscape which occurs in front of visitors. I want to enjoy and admire, I want to soak in the memory of this beauty. Really don't want to leave. Elbe sail boats, motor boats and porohodiki. Everything seems a little and toy. To visit the attractions, preferably good weather.

  • Mountains. Trees. Waterfalls. Boulders. Quaint towns. An old trolley. Bring your family. Be happy.
  • Amazing terrain, nothing to steep. Beautiful views everywhere and pubs at the end of many trails. Even while raining it was gorgeous, you can imagine some parts being deep underwater millions of years ago.
  • Amazing trails, of different difficulties (ranging from easy to very hard) and views that can't be missed. Really enjoyed the "malerweg", and the rustic cafes/ice-cream stops you find off the trail.
  • Great National Park for full day hikes. You can easily travel there by train. Don't miss it when you're in Saxony!
  • Superschöne Ecke zum Wandern. Klein aber knackig. Wenige Höhenmeter, die aber steil. An Wochenende aber auf den Hauptwegen viel los.
