Guided hiking tours

If you want to get to know a region properly, put yourself in the care of an experienced guide. This also applies to the Elbe Sandstone Mountains. There are several providers of guided hikes through the rock world: among others, the national park administration, the national park center as well as local tourist information offices and certified national park guides.

On the trail of nature

For one it is simply beautiful rocks, forests, streams and animals. For others, a pristine erosion landscape with montane flora and fauna and a fascinating microclimate.

Everyone discovers the natural landscape of the Saxon-Bohemian Switzerland National Park Region, which is unique in Central Europe, differently. But to experience the uniqueness of the region in all its depth, it is advisable to tap into the expertise of the Saxon Switzerland National Park Office. Because you can only see what you know.

Thematic diversity

During guided hikes, visitors gain deep insights into the interrelationships of nature and history of the national park region. The variety of topics is enormous. For example, the National Park Service offers free hikes, such as the bird song hike or a guided ant tour. Certified national park guides cover a large part of the offer with their individual, themed hikes (for a small fee).

From the classic, such as the hike to the Schrammsteinen, to herb hikes to tours in the remote corners of the national park, everything is there. Many of these offers can be found in the regular hikes, which take place every day of the week from May 1 to October 30. The registration is necessary until the day before.
