Why take this tour?

The bizarre rocky landscape, which opens in the upper Elbe valley, from Pirna, has always been the preferred excursion destination for the Dresdeners and their guests. Swiss painters discovered the sandstones as a unique landscape setting just over two hundred years ago. The well-known natural highlights such as Bastei, Königstein Fortress, Schrammsteine etc. have already inspired artists such as Caspar David Friedrich, Richard Wagner and Carl Maria von Weber. Our tour takes you directly to the Saxon Switzerland National Park, further via Bastei and Königstein Fortress - for a very special nature experience.
