Trip to Saxon Switzerland:
Upstream of the Elbe, along the river, this tour takes us directly into the national park „Saxon Switzerland“. The bizarre and impressive rock landscape which opens up to us in the upper Elbe Valley from Pirna onwards, has always been the most popular excursion destination for the residents of Dresden and their guests. The famous nature highlights such as the „Barbarine“ rock and the „Schrammsteine“ have inspired artists like Caspar David Friedrich and Richard Wagner. On our stop at the world-famous „Bastei“ you will be treated to a breathtaking view of the Elbe Valley and surrounding rock formations. The „Lilienstein“ and „Königstein“ mesas are seemingly close enough to touch. Our next stop is the „Königstein“ Fortress, one of the largest fortresses in Europe, with its casemates, barracks and deep sandstone wells. The glorious vista over the Ore Mountains and the Bohemian Central Uplands will be etched in your memory forever. A boat ride from „Königstein“ to Dresden through the fabulous scenery of the national park leaves you with a “pure nature experience” and is a perfect ending to your excursion.
