This cross-border circular tour takes you past many (natural) sights of Saxon-Bohemian Switzerland.

The tour begins in Königstein. At the roundabout, head towards Rosenthal-Bielatal and follow this road to the Königstein district of Hütten. Here the road turns right towards Leupoldishain. After a long climb, turn left onto a forest path called Hirschstange. There are great views of the Pfaffenstein from this easy forest path. The tour continues below the Langenhennersdorf rock labyrinth until the forest path turns into the Nikolsdorfer Weg. In the village, keep left and you will reach the valley of the Biela. Here you follow the Königsteiner Straße through the village of Rosenthal to the Czech border, where you take the marked path towards Sněžník (Schneeberg) at the Eulenhor. At the Schneeberg stop, cycle right through the village and then left up the High Schneeberg. Return along the path and then turn right onto cycle path 23 (Ore Mountain magistrale) to Děčín from where you can return to Königstein along the Elbe cycle path.
