Tips

  • Stefan

    The Gohrisch offers many facets, the path first leads through a beautiful forest and rises steadily, then you can see the steep walls behind the trees and the area is surrounded by rock falls. If you come closer to the survey, there are several ways to climb the mountain. A freer staircase, a narrower staircase (both suitable for round-trip) and finally the special ascent over the Falkenschlucht (only suitable for the ascent and tested with a large photo backpack: D) Once at the top, it takes a while to lead the way over the summit plateau various hiking trails (good shoes necessary), small stairs and easier paths. But if you really want to experience something, you must also be willing to take risks and devote yourself to the mountain hiking trails (rather nothing for children!). A visit with children or dogs is rather not recommended, because you need good surefootedness here!

    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!

    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 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.

    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.

    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 Falcon Canyon is a breathtaking hiking trail. He is difficult but beautiful.

    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.

    The climb is beautiful (we are through the Falkenschlucht) and the view afterwards great and relaxing. You can relax ...

    As the name implies, the cave acted as a hiding place during various wars.
    However, there is a likelihood of confusion. Because not the narrow, trapped cave is the highlight here, but the inaccessible rock boiler itself, the soldiers and farmers used as a refuge.
    Noteworthy is the tiny body of water, which people have dug into the rock as a cistern.

    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 degraded state has taken some of its ferocity from the Falcon Canyon. The wooden climbing aids had something.
    Nevertheless, she remains our favorite ascent to the Gohrisch.

    On the Gohrischstein lead from the west side of two ways up: the over the Forststeig and over the Falkenschlucht. The latter is characterized as difficult and leads over steep steel ladders and very narrow passages upwards. Definitely the more adventurous variant.
