  • Charles Büttner

    The Uttewalder Felsentor was once one of the most famous tourist attractions in Saxon Switzerland. The gate is formed by three fallen rocks, which are stuck in the steep walls of this straight man-sized gorge.

    Fallen stones have been trapped in this place in the gorge, forming a natural stone gate. Even Caspar David Friedrich has discovered and painted this impressive rock formation for himself.

    A must in Saxon Switzerland, also worthwhile because there are still many highlights in a relatively small area.

    Fun for everyone and one of the most beautiful motifs on the Malerweg.

    Very nice tour of Liebethaler reason by Lohmen (runs through the village) in the Uttewalder reason to Wehlen. Easy tour with great highlights 😊

    The Uttewalder Grund is one of the "old-famous" and most beautiful canyons in Saxon Switzerland.
    Coming from Dresden via Lohmen, the so-called Malerstraße led the sensitive Wanderer through the then still wild and lonely ground, starting in the Romantic era.

    The Uttewalder Felsentor once represented one of the most famous tourist sights in Saxon Switzerland. The gate is formed by three fallen rocks, which are stuck in the steep walls of the here man-sized canyon.

    Picturesque valley at the creek between sandstone rocks. Through the Uttengalder Grund leads the "Malerweg", one of the main hiking trails of the Elbsandsteingebirge. A special highlight here is the Uttewalder Felsentor.

    The rock is hanging low. Here you have to bend down.

    The Uttewalder Grund is easy to walk on. As an entry I like to choose the small town Lohmen. There you can get from Pirna well by bus and by train Pirna-Sebnitz (in September 2019: rail replacement transport). On the way you can branch off to Rathewalde, to Wehlen or over the Zscherregrund to the bastion.

    Very light, fairly flat way, which is also suitable for strollers or wheelchairs. To strengthen there is also a refreshment.

    Walk on the Malerweg through a tranquil valley with impressive rock formations. Well-developed path through the valley.

    A primeval path for young and old.
    Highlite are the three rock gates, because three rocks fell into the narrow gorge of the Uttewalder Grund during the time of their creation ...

    Some fallen rocks clung to a particularly narrow spot on the Uttewalder Grund. The resulting rock gate can be easily walked through.
    The Uttewalder Felsentor was already a popular destination in the Romantic era. The motif can be found on many paintings and drawings by the artists of that time. It was also mentioned by writers.

    We were here in September, since the Grundbach had only sand in bed.
