    Everything has already been written about the bastion. So just enjoy the sight and take in everything.

    From here there is the world-famous view of the Bastei bridge. Definitely visit, the view is great and extends in good visibility to the Hohe Schneeberg (CZ) the highest with 723m Talfelberg in the Elbe Sandstone Mountains.

    Beautiful view and very quiet: apart from a climber we were alone, while opposite to directly on the Basteibrücke many tourists were

    If you want to get exactly this perspective on the bridge, then you probably have to hire and wait a little wait. But not too many people are worth it!

    Good view of the Bastei bridge. The two euro admission worthwhile for that reason alone.

    As a photographer, a visit outside of rush hours is recommended (see other tips). A big backpack is also not recommended in these times. There are different places (see pictures) from which one can admire the bastion.
