    Good starting point for hiking in the monkey stones. Here you can strengthen yourself a bit.

    A worth seeing piece of nature 👍🏻
    In conjunction with the Preßnitztalbahn or and the hike to the cowshed an absolute must.
    I can not say anything about the restaurant.

    The Lichtenhain waterfall has been a tourist attraction since 1830. It is operated by a weir, that if necessary (presence of tourists) by the "waterfall puller" - an extra then established Office - is operated.

    Ideal for a delicious graduation beer with dramatic music and a not so dramatic waterfall 😉

    The waterfall runs 2x per hour for only a few minutes. Then it is impressive. Just bridge the meantime with a cyclist in the neighboring beer garden.

    A nice inn in the valley. Ideal during a hike on the Malerweg. Do not forget to visit the waterfall.

    An "artificial" waterfall. However, he is just one of them.

    A very nice photo opportunity. The waterfall is only active twice an hour. So wait for the right time.

    The waterfall is located in the idyllic Kirnitzschtal. You can reach it with the Kirnitzschtalbahn or from Bad Schandau in 15 minutes by car.
    This waterfall originated from the Lichtenhain village brook. In 1994, the dam was restored. Since then, the weir has been opened every half an hour with music.

    Good rest stop, good starting point for tours, especially as the Kirnitzschtalbahn makes it the last stop (from Bad Schönau).
    Also overnight (was our intermediate goal of the sporty Malerweg) possible. In addition, of course, the "waterfall"

    To look sad and yet - nature wins in the long run and shows us who has the power. Accept and enjoy the Kirnitzschtal.
