What a panorama! The Osterzgebirge, Bohemian low mountain range, Zittau Mountains, Stolpen and Bischofswerda lie at the feet of the hiker at the Hohburkersdorfer Rundblick. Even Napoleon is said to have appreciated this view point - because of its strategic importance. A relaxed and sunny four-and-a-half-kilometer tour there begins and ends in Rathewalde, a district of Hohnstein.
