Great hiking

Hiking, and nothing but hiking, is probably the greatest thing to do in the Elbe Sandstone Mountains of Saxon Switzerland National Park. The age-old landscape, with its bizarre rock formations and fascinating flora and fauna, makes it one of the most enchanting hiking areas in Europe.

Historic towns

The Elbe Valley is steeped in a long and fascinating cultural history. European history was made here in the midst of idyllic nature and along important trade routes. It is present to this day in the historic towns, castles, gardens and forts.

The paintings and poems of the Romantic artists made the area world-famous. Numerous sights and points of interest are easily accessible everywhere in the area.

Beautiful cycling along the Elbe

Cycling is a wonderful way to explore Saxon Switzerland. Along the Elbe, you ride at ease amidst impressive nature, old castles, and stately palaces. In the many charming villages and towns, you can stop for coffee or lunch.

The route is part of the 1,300 long Elbe Cycle Path, one of the most beautiful cycling routes in Europe. You can bring your own bike on the European Sleeper to Dresden, Bad Schandau, or Děčín.
