The Bastei is probably the most famous highlight of Saxon Switzerland. In the peak season from April to October, the bastion is often visited by tourists, but in the winter months you have the opportunity, and not infrequently, to escape the crowds and enjoy the breathtaking views of the Elbe in peace.
The Bastei bridge is a classic among the hiking destinations in the Elbe Sandstone Mountains, with magnificent views over the Elbe and the Lilienstein. The visit in the early morning is most worthwhile to enjoy the sunrise and the flow of tourists is also very limited.
The buses full of tourists that are dumped here regularly are already amazing and the subsequent crowding on the bridge spoil every hiker's enjoyment of nature.
Early here before 8 o'clock for sunrise ... And you have your peace and wonderful views into the Elbe Valley!
