Rosenthal-Bielatal – a winter dream

Adventure and romance in the realm of rock towers

How fascinating these formations are! Two mighty rock pinnacles reach for the winter sky like weathered sculptures, slightly warped with far too heavy heads. This makes them look strong and fragile at the same time. These rock needles called Hercules Columns count among the most spectacular rock formations of Saxon Switzerland. They are not only popular climbing summits but also symbols of a winter hiking paradise which is still known to insiders only: Rosenthal-Bielatal. This community is situated in the south of the region almost on Czech territory, set back from the main touristic routes. Those who seek quiet will find it here. You can often walk for hours without meeting a single soul. However, the countryside is as multifaceted as is hardly any other area of Saxon Switzerland.

Extensive hilly lands, wild cliffs and deeply carved valleys with murmuring brooks form new picturesque sceneries over and over again. But there are adventurous trails with steep steps and ladders up to highly elevated viewing points as well. Those who are staying in Rosenthal-Bielatal can start a hiking tour right from their lodge’s front door. So lace up your hiking boots now and rush into winter hiking fun!
