    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.

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