Here we inform you about measures in the region that restrict tourist activities in the Saxon Switzerland vacation region. >> FAQs (please scroll down)

To protect our nature

Forest commandments apply, to which ALL visitors and hikers should adhere:

  • Firing and smoking is strictly prohibited - fire endangers nature - not only during drought!
  • Entering the forests is at your own risk. Dead or burned trees can fall at any time.
  • Observe the trail commandment and stay on the marked hiking trails.

Information about temporarily impassable trails under Trail Service & Info or on the info phone of the National ParkCenter: +49 (0) 35022 - 502 40.

We will inform you about temporary restrictions on the Malerweg  here.

A heartfelt THANK YOU goes out to all emergency personnel who worked tirelessly during the forest fire to save our nature from greater damage!!!

Good to know: you will encounter directly burned areas only in a few places, because the fires were mainly in the valuable and less accessible core zone. However, these areas still need their rest. Therefore, please always stay on the marked trails!

Schwedenlöcher closed until spring 2023

Another part of the jetty in the Schwedenlöcher has to be replaced.
This measure will not allow any access until spring 2023. It will then all be ready again for the start of the 2023 season.

A detour is signposted on site.
