Hiking trails Saxon Switzerland

Around 1200 kilometres of marked hiking trails in Saxon Switzerland lead through lush green forests and mystical valleys, over lofty heights and past bizarre rock formations to ever new, breathtaking panoramas. What makes the hiking trails in Saxon Switzerland an immersive and unforgettable experience is the sheer natural diversity of the region. A wide variety of landscapes come together in a very small area: cliffs, table mountains, plains, gorges and valleys. They all entice you on a journey through impressive remnants of primeval nature in the middle of Germany.

We have put together the most beautiful hiking trails for you here: choose from over 250 hiking tours (and cycling tours). Hiking made easy: these hiking recommendations can be easily saved as a PDF, printed out or downloaded with a GPS track. In addition, there is information on how to get there, especially by public transport, total length and duration, route characteristics and altitude profile of the hiking trails, tips on interesting points along the hiking trail and suitable accommodation.
