    Not quite as steep as the ascent from the parking lot.

    Coming east from Kleinhennersdorf or Papstdorf is flat and beautifully forested. Different from the west climb. Now and then there are a few stairs to climb.

    The Papststein captivates with its breathtaking panoramic view of Saxon Switzerland. From here you have the most beautiful sunset. After a ten-minute ascent, which is illuminated in the dark, you reach the mountain inn and can enjoy the unforgettable view that extends as far as Dresden.

    You should definitely take the time and explore the rocks.

    The ascent to the Papststein is well developed, there are various alternatives (from the brisk but steep staircase to the more extensive but less steep step path). Also good for families with children, everything is forested and well developed.

    The east climb is moderately steep and consists only of wooden stairs. This should make it feasible for everyone. Quaint vegetation here.

    Here it goes steeply up the stairs. There is already something to hike in the Elbe Sandstone Mountains and to climb the many stairs. On this tour alone I had reached 79 floors.

    Coming from the direction of Papstdorf or from Kleinhennersdorfer Stein, the long eastern climb is ideal. In the south there are also views of the little village of Papstdorf.
