On August 7th, the general ban on entering the forest in the district was lifted. BUT: for the area in the Hintere Sächsische Schweiz is still a ban on entering the forest in order not to hinder the work. >> Updated map of the prohibited area.
Are there any restrictions, trail closures or the like at the moment because of the locally limited forest fire? Look here.
Saxon Switzerland National Park Region
Saxon Switzerland is Germany’s only rock National Park. The landscape of the Elbe Sandstone Mountains, eroded to picturesque rugged scenery of Cretaceous origin, provides a fascinating micro-climate and is home to a real treasure of rare animals and plant species.
Hiking and nothing but hiking – probably the greatest thing to do in the Elbe Sandstone Mountains. The age-old natural landscape with its bizarre rock formations and its fascinating flora and fauna is one of the most enchanting hiking areas of Europe.
