Tips

  • Torsten

    The Zirkelstein is wonderfully exposed - one of the most beautiful views in Saxon Switzerland. All around you can see the large mountains of Bohemian Switzerland, such as the Rabenstein and the Schneeberg. And striking silhouettes of the Saxon rocks, such as Greater and Lesser Zschirnstein, Pfaffenstein, Lilienstein, Schrammsteine, Winterberg and of course - very close - the imperial crown.

    Nice short trip with visit to the Oldtimermuseum in Schöna and hike to and on the Zirkelstein. Even the nearby imperial crown is recommended.

    It is really a very quick and short climb. But the panoramic view there is really wonderful. Does anyone have good tour suggestions where you can integrate it as a stage, so to speak.

    The Zirkelstein is the smallest table mountain in Saxon Switzerland and has a very distinctive shape.

    The ascent to Zirkelstein is worth his view. In great weather, we could look far into the Bohemian Switzerland and to the Lilienstein and the Schrammsteine ​​are great to see.

    This view is worth a climb anyway. The paths and staircases are pretty well developed. In wet weather and snow you have to be a little careful, because the stairs are made of metal (danger of slipping). But always feasible!

    Steep climb with many stairs. As for a great all-round view when man arrives at the top.

    The surrounding area around Schöna and the two elevations (Kaiserkrone and Zirkelstein) are picturesque and offer a great destination or starting point for hikes through the surrounding area - I myself started a 30er over the Zschiersteine, Papststein, Bad Schandau to Altendorf - great round.

    The Zirkelstein is located directly opposite the Kaiserkrone, the last part of the ascent consists of ladders. At the top you have a great view. In the main tourist season in summer it is FULL.
