Elbe sandstone highlights
The tour starts from Hohnstein over the heights first to Goßdorf with its breathtaking view. On narrow mountain roads and an 18% descent to Kohlmühle, you continue to Rathmannsdorf and Rathmannsdorfer Höhe, where a detour to the observation tower is worthwhile. The route continues on the panorama road from Altendorf via Mittelndorf to Lichtenhain. If you make a stop, you can enjoy fantastic views of the Schrammsteine and the Upper Saxon Switzerland. The next destination is the artificial flower town of Sebnitz. From there it goes to the Czech Dolni Poustevna via the narrow streets of the city, the trout tavern, the Bergstrasse and the market square. The tour now leads to Saupsdorf, Hinterhermsdorf and the Kirnitzschtal over the Lichtenhain waterfall to Bad Schandau on the Elbe. Here is an ideal place for an extended lunch break. The journey continues over the Elbe bridge to Krippen, Kleinhennersdorf, Gohrisch to Königstein with its impressive fortress. Via Rathen the route follows to Pirna over the Sachsenbrücke and from there towards Bastei, the most visited tourist attraction in Saxon Switzerland. The return journey takes you back to Hohnstein via the old racetrack.
