Create an itinerary including Elbe Sandstone Mountains
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. Use our Bad Schandau day trip tool to arrange your visit to Elbe Sandstone Mountains and other attractions in Bad Schandau.

  • Very nice hiking opportunities. Interesting sandstone formation and beautiful view from the top. Great for any age groups. You can choose from two different paths. Possibility of rock climbing...

  • The Elbe Sandstone Mountains are in Gemany, not the Tsjech Republic. I was there last year and can really recommend it, its absolutely beautiful. We went by bicycle from Dresden, and back again but my honest opinion is that I would rather take the boat next time as this was way too much cycling for me. But it enabled me to see all the villages on the way. Dresden is such a beautiful city
