Hohnstein-Bastei circular tour
Hohnstein – Goßdorf – Kohlmühle – Rathen – Wehlen – Bastei – Hohnstein
There are some highlights to see on this tour. At the starting point in Hohnstein, it is worth visiting the castle directly on the market and taking a detour to see the Brand view. The first goal is Goßdorf with its impressive foresight. It continues steeply downhill towards Kohlmühle, whose disused linoleum factory exudes an unusual charm. From the valley the route leads up over the heights, where you can see the imposing Lilienstein, and back down to the health resort of Rathen. Then you cycle comfortably along the Elbe to Wehlen and from there uphill to Rathewalde. A stopover to visit the Bastei is worthwhile here. We continue to the Hohburkersdorfer Höhe, whose fantastic panoramic view makes you forget the hardships of the ascent. Now the goal of Hohnstein is not far anymore. After the descent from Zeschnig down into the Polenztal, the last ascent to the city follows.
