    The Gohrisch offers many facets. The path first leads through a beautiful forest and rises steadily, then you slowly see the steep walls behind the trees and the area is lined with rock falls. When you get closer to the elevation there are different ways to climb the mountain. A freer staircase, a narrower staircase (both suitable for a return trip) and finally the special ascent over the Falcon Gorge (only suitable for the ascent and tested with a large photo backpack: D). Once at the top, you are speechless. Various mountain hiking trails (good footwear necessary), small stairs and easier paths lead over the summit plateau. If you really want to experience something, you also have to be willing to take risks and dedicate yourself to the mountain hiking trails. A walk with children or dogs is rather not recommended, since you need good sure-footedness here!

    Der Gohrisch befindet sich etwa vier Kilometer südöstlich von Königstein und etwa vier Kilometer südlich von Bad Schandau inmitten einer Hochebene (Ebenheit), die noch durch weitere gleichartige Felsberge dominiert wird. Umliegende Berge sind der Papststein, der Kleinhennersdorfer Stein und die Lasensteine. Touristisch wird diese Mikroregion in der Sächsischen Schweiz oft auch als das Gebiet der Steine benannt.
    Am Fuß des Gohrisch liegen die kleinen Orte Kurort Gohrisch und Papstdorf, die zur Gemeinde Gohrisch gehören. An der Ostseite befindet sich als Zeuge früherer Bergbauversuche der Specksteinstollen. In unmittelbarer Nähe dessen befindet sich ein kleiner, verwachsener Steinbruch in dem Basalt als Straßenschotter abgebaut wurde. 1496 wird der „Gohrischer Stein“ erstmals urkundlich erwähnt. Im Dreißigjährigen Krieg diente eine durch Verwitterung entstandene Klufthöhle („Schwedenhöhle“) als kurzzeitiger Zufluchtsort für die Bewohner der Umgebung.
    Das zerklüftete Felsplateau stand einer touristischen Erschließung des Berges lange entgegen. Noch 1846, als die touristische Erschließung der benachbarten Berge bereits im Gange war, vermerkte ein Reiseführer: „Der Gorischstein ist sehr schwer zu ersteigen.“ Erst als sich das Dorf Gohrisch ab 1869 zu einer Sommerfrische entwickelte, wurde auch der Berg zunehmend ein Ziel von Ausflüglern. Unter dem königlichen Oberförster Emil Grünewald (1842–1892) und mit Unterstützung des Gebirgsvereins für die Sächsisch-Böhmische Schweiz wurde der Gipfel 1886 durch drei befestige Wege zugänglich gemacht. Zwei Jahre später (1888) errichtete der Verschönerungsverein Cunnersdorf auf der Ostseite des Gipfelplateaus eine kleine achteckige Schutzhütte. Vermutlich noch Ende des 19. Jahrhunderts wurde am Felsen der Westaussicht eine erste Wetterfahne aufgestellt, die der Aussicht die Bezeichnung „Wetterfahnenaussicht“ einbrachte. Die Schutzhütte an der Ostaussicht verfiel nach 1945. Die nach Endes des Zweiten Weltkrieges ebenfalls nicht mehr unterhaltenen Wegeanlagen wurden 1955 im Rahmen des Nationalen Aufbauwerkes wiederhergestellt. 1985 erfolgte die Aufstellung der nunmehr sechsten Wetterfahne auf der Wetterfahnenaussicht. Die verfallene Schutzhütte wurde 1998 an gleicher Stelle neu errichtet.

    A mountain trail and a short staircase with chains to support lead to the Gohrischscheibe. You cross smaller ravines and end up on a small free plateau, a short section is secured with a railing and leads to a weather vane. Otherwise, one should think twice his steps here, one step too far and it was the last! ;) Stability, sure-footedness and a head for heights are an absolute must!

    Although the Gohrischstein has no restaurant, every trip to it makes fun again and again. It is the originality and the magnificent view, which one enjoys every time new. There are also three different ascents and descents. From the same trail parking lot can also climb the nearby Papststein, which has a very nice mountain inn. So best to explore both stones in a double pack. The ascent takes just 7-10 minutes for both stones.

    In my opinion, one of the most beautiful rocks in Saxon Switzerland. From here you can see all the highlights ring around.
    Both the weather vane view and the refuge view are fantastic.

    Beautiful view of the Pfaffenstein and the landscape. Worthwhile as a break and detour from Forststeig.

    The "weather vane view" to the north is really fantastic.
    Pfaffenstein - Königstein - Dresden in the background - Lilienstein - Rathener rock and on up to the Schrammsteinen.

    The Gohrischstein with its 440m is one of the highest table mountains in the Saxon Switzerland.
    In the old sorbian Gora for mountain.
    To the north you will be rewarded with a 180 degree view, but otherwise the view is just fantastic.
    I recommend the Old Rise, old name West Rise, he is in my opinion the better way.

    From Gohrischstein you can enjoy one of the most phenomenal views of the entire Malerweg. All the famous rock formations build up in front of you on the right bank of the Elbe and you can really grasp their dimensions from this perspective. It is worthwhile to take a break at this wonderful place.

    As the name suggests, the cave served as a hiding place during various wars.
    However, there is a risk of confusion. Because it is not the narrow, pinched cave that is the highlight here, but the inaccessible rock basin itself, which the soldiers and farmers used as a refuge.
    The tiny body of water that people have dug into the rock as a cistern is remarkable.

    The access is not easy, because the steps are broken, NOTE: it is a dead end, the further narrow climb does not continue. Therefore, you have to climb back over no longer existing levels. The Schwedenhöhle is a deeper gap in the rock.

    over the demanding section of the Faljrnschlucht you come to Gohrischstein. Free stairs, ladders and steep descents must be overcome. For the very brave, there is the section also for professionals ... extremely demanding .... rather dangerous

    The current state of the Falcon Gorge has taken away some of its wildness. The wooden climbing aids had something.
    Nevertheless, it remains our favorite climb on the Gohrisch.
