Hike: Malerweg – The Bastei

This combines the first two stages of the Malerweg, or the Painters’ Way, through the forests of Saxon-Switzerland. The highlight is, without doubt, the fortress-like bridge of the Bastei and the dramatic views of the Elbe Valley below. The hike also includes some spectacular scenery up in the forests near Hohnstein.

How to Get Here:

  • The hike starts in the town of Wehlen and ends in Hohnstein. Wehlen can be reached by train and Hohnstein by bus.
