Struppen

Art and hiking compact

Situated between Pirna and Königstein, Struppen in the area of the large and small Bärenstein is a central and at the same time quiet holiday resort.

 

The municipality of Struppen with the districts of Naundorf, Thürmsdorf, Weißig, Ebenheit and Strand is located on the left bank of the "Vordere Sächsische Schweiz" (Saxon Switzerland) in the Rathen Elbe arch.

A special attraction is the Robert-Sterl-Haus in the Naundorf district. Oil paintings, drawings and prints by the famous German impressionist Robert Sterl (1867-1932) can still be seen in the last home and workplace of the artist.

The municipality offers the best conditions for a varied holiday stay for young and old. Hikers in particular get their money's worth here. The Bärensteine, the particularly charming ridge trail on the Rauenstein, Königstein Fortress, the Basteiaussicht near Rathen, the Felsenbühne Rathen and the adventure pool in Wehlen are all equally easy to reach from all parts of the village.

A day on the Elbe with the historic paddle steamer fleet or a cycle tour along the Elbe cycle path past the steeply towering cliffs will remain in every visitor's memory for a long time. The rock world in the municipality of Struppen also offers mountaineers a range of activities in all degrees of difficulty. 

These districts are part of Struppen
