    A "must" when visiting "Saxon Switzerland".
    In the holidays / holidays you will be amazed how many people are traveling on the Lilienstein. This should be considered in the planning, as the search for a parking space is not easy and even at the top of each trail quickly creates a traffic jam.
    There are two ways of ascension. Both are connected by numerous stairs, steps and ladders.
    At the top there is the "Felsgaststätte Lilienstein". Opposite this is an obelisk (this was erected in 1889 for the 800th anniversary of the Wettins).

    Easy ascent via serpentines, ladders and stairs.
    From the west corner you have a very good view of the fortress Königstein (S), Weissig with the Rauenstein (W) and health resort Rathen with the Bastei (NW).

    Since we are always traveling with a dog, I can recommend this short but beautiful hike suitable as dogs. However, your dog (if you can not wear it) should be able to walk on small ladders, as they are in the North Rise. In the south rise there are relatively large stone steps and only a grid. All in all, fairly tight ascent and descent. The western outlook has started quite well on the weekend and therefore difficult with a dog. Not because the dog does not make it, but rather because of the many people. However, there are also kick bars. So only for dogs who can! But that's not so bad, all other prospects are enough to see enough and far into the distance. The Liliensteinbaude had opened with us.

    The ascent to the Lilienstein is definitely worth it. No matter if good or bad weather. :) We went up the Nordsteig - but rather recommend the Südsteig, as this is easier.

    Who would like to discover the Lilienstein with dog, should choose the north and the south descent - so the four-legged run the (sometimes relatively steep and long) iron stairs only upwards ... and that is usually easier;)

    Our dogs (big differences from the boxer to the Bolognese) had no problems.
