Saxon Switzerland is a National Park in the Elbe Sandstone Mountains – about an hour from Meissen by car or commuter train, it is situated upriver from Dresden.
A surreal and unexpected landscape unfolds on both sides of the Elbe river. Enormous towering rock pinnacles protrude from deep, dark forests, flat table hills offer magnificent vistas. This giant sandstone maze is heaven for rock climbers and hikers, and a popular weekend getaway for the city dwellers of Dresden.
