Tips

  • Stephanie

    From the "Balcony of Saxon Switzerland" you have an incomparable panorama over the Elbsandsteingebirge. The fire is in the middle of the forest, 170 meters above the Polenztal. The brave sit down a little further on the rock, who prefers solid ground under their feet, enjoys the view at a stop in the "Brandbaude".

    "The traditional mountain restaurant Brand near Hohnstein got a new operator in September 2006

    The ensemble of houses in need of renovation has been modernized in line with tradition. The closeness to nature is emphasized when it comes to building materials and leisure activities, while regional products dominate the menu.
    On the site high above the Polenz Valley, the excursion restaurant with a panoramic terrace was renovated between June and August 2007 and a guest room was added. The more than 100-year-old hostel tradition has been resumed with a rustic mattress warehouse and rooms in various categories.
    Since the end of September 2006, an information point in the administration of the "Saxon Switzerland" National Park has been providing help in exploring the area in the middle of the Elbe Sandstone Mountains. "- brand-baude.de

    The view from the fire is located near Hohnstein in the Saxon Switzerland. A wonderful view over the Polenztal over to Zschirnstein, Pfaffenstein, Lilienstein, Königstein, city Wehlen and Basteifelsen offers itself from the cultivated terrace.

    Not only the magnificent view but also the good food invite you to take a break. Hikers on the Malerweg should take the chance. Many other options are not available at this stage and the food is really good.

    The view from the top is simply spectacular, hence the surname balcony ...
    I recommend the ascent of the "Tiefen Grund" through the Forstgraben or about 800 fire steps ...
