This hiking trail will take you to the Brand viewpoint, the so-called “balcony” of Saxon Switzerland. Here, the landscape ends in a sheer drop, and you can look down into the deep Polenz Valley. The location is exposed, and views down into the canyon-like valley and into the landscape beyond are truly spectacular.
