    For 1.80 € you can comfortably go up here and still enjoy a magnificent view! Known from the movie: The Grand Budapest Hotel!

    You pay directly in the elevator and after a few seconds you have a breathtaking view over the Elbe and Bad Schandau! Above, a small restaurant and a lynx enclosure invite you to linger.
    If you feel like it, just go back on foot or use the lift again.
    In the evening, the elevator (tower) shines through LED light ... is just a matter of taste😉

    The free-standing, 50 m high tower is built in solid steel construction and connected by a bridge with a forest path. From the viewing platform, there is a wide view over the Elbe Valley, from the Großer Winterberg above Schmilka to the majestic Lilienstein, the landmark of the Saxon Switzerland National Park.

    You pay directly at the "Liftboy" Above there are two lynxes to see in a small outdoor enclosure. Small refreshments with terrace and beautiful views of the Elbe Valley.

    A ride in the technical masterpiece is always worthwhile. For me it is fascinating what was possible 100 years ago in Bad Schandau with the lift and the electric tram.

    From the lift, past the lynx enclosure, follow the path to the west.We come to the viewpoint Karls Ruh and continue downhill again into the village. A little easy round.

    A wonderful historic lift that can be integrated very well on tours and you must have driven it once 😀 the lynx enclosure above is not a big deal but without entry you can still look lynx and I think very nicely done

    The pleasant way to get to Ostrava. Directly at the elevator there is a restaurant and a lynx enclosure. Surely exciting for smaller visitors to see the wild cat.

    We've seen this 2x once we're off it and have not taken it properly for full. However, when this evening was lit we stopped and just had to stop by. If we are back then we will take a closer look and will surely go with it ...

    Great elevator, for Bad Schandau visitors, a ride is a must. Good access to great hiking trails, once you're up. Nice view also on the Elbe.
