Tips

  • Nancy 😗 🥾🚶‍♀️⛰ 🚴‍♀️

    You should be up early if you want to take pictures without tourists.

    On the way from the parking lot to the bastion you pass this great vantage point. You should make the short detour to enjoy the first impressive views.

    For the visit of the bastion you should look for a quiet day during the week. Otherwise, it is often completely overcrowded here.

    Anyone who comes from the "lowlands" like me will be impressed by these mountains, which are certainly one of the most beautiful sections in our home country.

    Not only the bastion or the Schwedenlöcher are worth seeing. There is always something great on this tour, e.g. the Wehlstein view just before the bastion :-)

    It gets very crowded here in the summer months. Either you come here between October and March or quite early in the morning. Then you can enjoy the great view in peace.

    As falsely claimed by some here, the Wehlstein view is not the Ferdinand view!!! The Wehlsteinaussicht is located right here and is correctly named. And in front of the Bastei Hotel. The Ferdinand view is behind the Bastei Hotel on the left hand side on the way to the Bastei Bridge.
