Yes, it is possible! There are various campsites along the Malerweg. They are not always located exactly on the Malerweg. We recommend the following:
1st stage: Start: Camping Pirna and at the stage destination: Hostel on the Kulm (about 50 min walk away) or tent meadow at the Hinterland Hostel.
2nd stage: camping site Entenfarm
3rd stage: campground Ostrauer Mühle
4th stage: Camping Thorwaldblick Hinterhermsdorf
5th stage: no campsite nearby, we recommend Schöna Castle near Schmilka
6th stage: Caravan Camping Gohrisch
7th stage: Hostel on the Kulm & tent meadow at the Hinterland Hostel
8th stage: Camping Pirna
Important note: Wild camping is not allowed and can be punished with high fines!
Wilderness adventurers should take a look at the Forststeig. There are bivouac sites and trekking huts here. Scenically, the cross-border multi-day hiking tour is spectacular.>> FORSTSTEIG TRAIL
