#1 of 13 in Things to do in Bad Schandau
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.

  • Of course, the Elbe Sandstone Mountains are cool and possibly unique. But something like that is overrun and developed for tourism,... and everyone has to take a selfie. O tempora, o mores!

  • The Elbe Sandstone Mountains, Saxon Switzerland is definitely worth a trip, at least one week stay. Take hiking boots with you. Many of the hiking opportunities are accessible by open means of transport. By boat, by bus. The hikes are designed for every level of difficulty. On the way, rustic rustic restaurant to stop for.

  • 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.
