Elbe Sandstone Mountains, Bad Schandau
Straddling the border of Germany and the Czech Republic, Elbe Sandstone Mountains were carved by erosion and are divided by the Elbe, which flows through them in a narrow valley. The mountains are made up of many microclimates, such as forested areas, plains, and ravines, providing astounding ecological diversity. Visit the national park and make use of the many hiking trails or cycle routes. Rock climbers are lured here by more than 700 summits. An eco-friendly streetcar limits car traffic inside the park.

This holiday region is relatively unknown here in the North. The trip was worth absolutely, it's a great landscape, these rock formations are really worth seeing and extraordinary. There are many hiking possibilities for people like us who are not so accustomed with the hiking. There are also historic as the fortress, as well as castles and much to discover. I will recommend it as a holiday destination.
A wonderful Mountain Range. It has unbelievably great Rock Formations and also wonderful Hiking Trails. They are also something for young Children. A great Rock is the "Peace Stone." A Mountain Range that is always to be visited and there are always new Paths and Attractions. Definitely worth a Visit.
