Short facts

Mountain and viewpoint near Hohnstein

At 291 m above sea level, the Hockstein offers a grandiose view of the Polenz Valley 115 m below. The transition from the Lusatian overthrust to sandstone is particularly clear here: granite upstream, sandstone downstream. The remains of a medieval fortification can be found on the Hockstein. Today's stone bridge dates from 1821 and is one of the first tourist structures in Saxon Switzerland. There is an engraved mill game on the rock spur.
