At nature's summit

The Elbe Sandstone Mountains represent one of the most spectacular hiking regions in Europe. Around 1,200 kilometres of designated hiking trails lead through lush green forests and mystical valleys, over lofty peaks and past complex rock formations to reveal different breathtaking, panoramic views at every turn.

The sheer diversity of the landscape in the region is what makes walking in the Elbe Sandstone Mountains a striking and unforgettable experience. The most diverse landscapes come together in the smallest space: rocks, flat-topped mounds, plains, ravines and valleys. They all entice you to take a journey through the impressive remnants of a primordial nature.
