    From the Bastei Bridge you also have a fantastic view of the Elbe Loop at Rathen.

    In Rathen, where you can take the ferry from the train, there are several opportunities to walk up to the bastion. All are signposted. There are also several ways to buy souvenirs, daily newspapers and magazines as well as to eat and drink in the numerous restaurants and restaurants.

    The most straight route from the town is the Basteiweg, which is steep and has a lot of steps. It takes about half an hour until you come to the Basteibruecke which is worth it for the view alone. Beware of the people coming down from the Bastei.

    If you are not there on the weekend, it is not so crowded either.

    It rained heavily during my hike. Nevertheless, the Bastei bridge was very full. On warm days it is certainly completely overcrowded.
