The Surroundings

The Saxon Switzerland is embedded in a unique, scenically beautiful environment. The Saxon Switzerland National Park, founded in 1990, is located in this area. The Bastei, the rock massif near Rathen, is one of the most famous natural monuments in the region. The 305 m high rock pulpit rises 194 m above the Elbe and offers an impressive landscape view. The large table mountains open up numerous other vantage points and panoramas that attract hikers and climbers in particular. In addition to many sporting activities, there are also cultural attractions such as the Felsenbühne Rathen or guided tours of the Königstein fortress. Various family packages and children's events also make the destination very family-friendly.

The Elbe Sandstone Mountains and Saxon Switzerland - known for their bizarre rock formations - offer a wide, attractive and varied range of activities both in summer and winter. Our team will be happy to help you with your planning.
