Hiking without luggage

Relaxed hiking with luggage transfer

A hiking tour in Saxon Switzerland is a fascinating experience. Wild and romantic gorges, bizarre rock formations in the Elbe Sandstone Mountains, forests and meadows and the landscape along the Elbe are what make this popular hiking region so attractive. There are also many sights, castles and interesting towns to discover. On Germany's most beautiful hiking trail - the Malerweg - you can hike most comfortably without luggage or with just a small day rucksack.

Although the armchair porters who dragged tired spirits up to the cowshed for 3 marks around 1900 no longer exist, various tour operators offer "hiking without luggage". You can book such a hiking tour for as few as 2 people. The stages are between 8-15 kilometres long. You spend the night in 3-4 star hotels along the hiking route. For a carefree hike, your luggage is always a little ahead of you and waiting for you in the next accommodation. You will also receive detailed information and maps. Additional overnight stays or extensions, for example in Dresden or Bad Schandau, can easily be booked.
