Starting in the village of Weißig, the Malerweg Trail leads to the stretched out table mountain called Rauenstein. During the hike along the path running over the complete mountain ridge of almost one kilometre length, you can enjoy grand 360 degree panoramic views of great scenery including cliffs, table mountains, the Elbe River valley, woods, fields and villages.
Culture lovers should definitely not miss a detour to Robert Sterl’s House in the village of Struppen-Naundorf, Saxon Switzerland’s most important art museum. After that, you follow the marked Malerweg Trail along the upper edge of former quarries to a look-out point called Königsnase (King’s Nose)
From the S-Bahn train stop in Obervogelgesang Village you continue along the Elbe Cycling Path and further on Canalettoweg Path to the town of Pirna. The final destination is the Canaletto House at the market square.
It houses the tourist information point where you can submit your stamped Malerweg Trail Pass and receive your certificate. Congratulations!
