Rock gate in the Uttewalder Grund

Short facts

  • Lohmen
  • Natural monument, Information…

The enchanting rock formation often immortalised by artists.

The picturesque Uttewalder Grund enchants with its stone gate, wild rocks and idyllic green landscape.

This inspiring backdrop has already inspired artists such as Caspar David Friedrich to create unique paintings. He once spent several days alone in the wild rocky valley to capture its darkly romantic atmosphere. The silhouettes of hikers below the boulders emphasise the diminutiveness of man in the grandiose natural landscape.

The Uttewalder Grund stretches between the towns of Stadt Wehlen and Lohmen and offers easy access as well as a variety of hiking opportunities for young and old. Cross the Uttewalder Grund and enter the area of the Saxon Switzerland National Park, a true natural beauty.
