    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.

    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.

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

    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.
