Elbe Sandstone Mountains, Bad Schandau

Must see · Mountain · Nature / Park
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. Use our Bad Schandau day trip tool to arrange your visit to Elbe Sandstone Mountains and other attractions in Bad Schandau.

  • A wonderful Mountain Range. It has unbelievably great Rock Formations and also wonderful Hiking Trails. They are also something for young Children. A great Rock is the "Peace Stone." A Mountain Range that is always to be visited and there are always new Paths and Attractions. Definitely worth a Visit.
