    Fallen stones have been trapped in this place in the gorge, forming a natural stone gate. Even Caspar David Friedrich has discovered and painted this impressive rock formation for himself.

    The Uttewalder Felsentor was once one of the most famous tourist attractions in Saxon Switzerland. The gate is formed by three fallen rocks, which are stuck in the steep walls of the straight man-sized gorge.

    Picturesque valley at the creek between sandstone rocks. Through the Uttengalder Grund leads the "Malerweg", one of the main hiking trails of the Elbsandsteingebirge. A special highlight here is the Uttewalder Felsentor.

    The rock is hanging low. Here you have to bend down.

    Some fallen rocks clung to a particularly narrow spot on the Uttewalder Grund. The resulting rock gate can be easily walked through.
    The Uttewalder Felsentor was already a popular destination in the Romantic era. The motif can be found on many paintings and drawings by the artists of that time. It was also mentioned by writers.

    A prehistoric way for big and small.
    Highlite are the three rocky gates, as three rocks fell into the narrow ravine of the Uttewalder Grund at the time of its creation ...
