    The Papststein is a 451 meter high Table Mountain in the left-Saxon Switzerland. The ascent is possible from two sides. There is a mountain inn and an even higher fire tower with fantastic views.
    Forest walkers follow the path down the Malerweg.

    Despite its height of 452 m, the Papststein is one of the summits which can easily be climbed without ladders or climbing aids from two sides. The more beautiful way is undoubtedly that coming from Kleinhennersdorf Stein. We recommend a hike, which first leads over the nearby Kleinhennersdorfer Stein, especially as this still has the lights and the ice cave to offer. Then you can finish the walk beautifully in the mountain inn on the Papststein with a hearty meal or Saxon beer.

    Over many stairs and ladders you reach the Papststein ... above is a small restaurant with some very delicious regional dishes. In addition, you have a great view.

    Also at the evening hour so the sunset a real highlight.

    You do not have to be afraid to go down in the dark. The way to the parking lot at Papstdorf is illuminated.

    The Papststein is so well located in the landscape that parts of the Papststein were hailed in the early 19th century to favor the strategic location with an even better view. The Papststein offers a view of Königstein, Lilienstein, the Bärensteine, the Schrammsteine ​​Falkenstein and the large Winterberg.

    In perfect weather a great destination, but of course in bad weather.
    The view of the Elbsandsteingebirge is a dream.

    The best is the round, which runs over the mountain and leads to Kleinhennerdorfer Stein with its caves. The great mountain restaurant invites you to take a break. A combination with the right next door Gohrischsteins is also recommended, as it is within walking distance of the same trail parking lot.

    On the way on the Malerweg, stage 6, some table mountains have to be climbed. Upstairs you will be rewarded with a great view and as here also with a very good gastronomic offer.

    The pope stone has many viewpoints in all directions.
    At the summit, a guest city awaits the exhausted hiker.

    At the small restaurants you can easily pass through the Elbe. Two steps up and you have the beautiful view towards Lilienstein and Rathener rock.

    Visit in the winter, you are almost alone on the way (also at the weekend). Super nice service in the restaurant, cuddly warm by the fireplace and great views of the snowy mountains ...

    An ascent to the Papststein is always worthwhile, either from the parking lot or from the "Gasthof zur Hoffnung". Both are very beautiful ways. The mountain industry invites to a strengthening :-)
