    The Zschirnstein is the highest mountain in Saxon Switzerland and allows a magnificent panoramic view. We were able to see the Giant Mountains and the Eastern Ore Mountains.

    The highest mountain in Saxon Switzerland with a magnificent view into the Bohemian Switzerland. The approach is a bit far, but not very difficult. The spring at the beginning of the valley invites to a refreshment and to fill the bottle - water is drinkable. And if you take some time on the plateau, with a bit of luck, you may observe quite rare birds of prey (more, not to mention, but the name says it all).
