Up to the landmark of the national park in the footsteps of Caspar David Friedrich

It is the landmark of the Saxon Switzerland National Park and a picture of a table mountain: the Lilienstein. Climbing the colossus is a strenuous but fulfilling hiking adventure. The Lilienstein also fascinated Caspar David Friedrich. This tour from the spa town of Rathen to Bad Schandau is as varied as his motifs of the table mountain.
