A special nature experience:
Enjoy this guided bus trip along the banks of the river Elbe. For a short photo stop, you stop at Pillnitz Castle, before the bus continues directly into the Saxon Switzerland National Park. The bizarre and impressive rock landscape which opens up to us in the upper Elbe Valley from Pirna onwards, has always been the most popular excursion destination for the residents of Dresden and their guests. The famous nature highlights such as the Barbarine rock and the Schrammsteine have inspired artists like Caspar David Friedrich and Richard Wagner. On our stop at the world-famous Bastei you will be treated to a breathtaking view of the Elbe Valley and surrounding rock formations. The Lilienstein and Königstein mesas are seemingly close enough to touch. Our next stop is the Königstein Fortress, one of the largest fortresses in Europe, with its casemates, barracks and deep sandstone wells. The glorious vista over the Ore Mountains and the Bohemian Central Uplands will be etched in your memory forever before returning to Dresden by double decker bus.

Option: Return by boat! A boat ride from Königstein to Dresden through the fabulous scenery of the national park leaves you with a “pure nature experience” and is a perfect ending to your excursion.
