Climate friendly travel
By train and without traffic jams comfortably to Pirna.
Now that's a challenge: over 1,000 kilometers of hiking trails in Saxon Switzerland ensure that all nature lovers, from strollers to ambitious hikers, get their money's worth. And if you want, you can even get some lessons in cultural history.
You don't have to go as far as Caspar David Friedrich. The famous painter once spent a few days at Uttewalder Grund in the silence of the narrow gorge with its bizarrely wedged rocks to absorb the romantic and gloomy atmosphere of this scenery. That's a bit extreme - but that doesn't mean you shouldn't visit there at all: The Uttewalder Grund, just like the Richard Wagner sites in Graupa or the Liebethaler Grund, is just one of the many sights that can be hiked in eight stages on the 112-kilometer "Malerweg" trail. And the "Malerweg" in turn is only one of the many possibilities to go hiking or climbing in the most beautiful way in Saxon Switzerland. In the region around the Saxon Switzerland National Park there are over 1100 kilometers of marked trails, paths and trails, 400 kilometers of which are in the protected national park itself. For those who also want to learn something about the varied area in Saxony: guided hikes with competent hiking guides are also available.
And if you need a little break from hiking: In the historic town center of Pirna you can relax, visit the Toskana Therme in Bad Schandau or take a steamboat trip with historic ships on the Elbe.
