    The health resort of Rathen is a tourist magnet due to its unique location on the Elbe, the rock stage and the scenic attractions around it. From here you can reach among others the Bastei, the Amselsee, the Schwedenlöcher, Gamrig, the Uttewalder Grund, the Schleifgrund and much more.

    Beautiful place, which has served us as a perfect starting point for hikes to and around the Bastei, to Lilienstein and the fortress Hohenstein. Car was parked on the first day in front of the apartment and only on the last day on departure again needed. In addition, there are many great restaurants in Rathen.

    Best travel time is in spring and autumn, in summer you have to expect long waiting times at the ferry.

    There is not much to notice from the spa here. Especially as an "air" spa drive somehow still too many misguided cars.
    But Rathen is the optimal entry point into the surrounding highlights of Saxon Switzerland - Bastei, Amselsee, Felsenbühne, etc.

    Starting point for many beautiful hikes. (ideally of course the parking on the other side of the Elbe, quite cheap for several days in case you stay on the way, with the ferry you are quickly translated)

    From the parking lot with the ferry over the Elbe and then go over many steps and stairs up to the bastion to have a great view of the village from above ;-)

    Rathen is a small, somewhat sleepy place at the foot of the bastion. Great starting point for hikes.

    A really beautiful and quiet place. A visit is really worthwhile - possibly in connection with a visit to the Felsenbühne.

    Good starting point for hikes to the bastion, stone table for Lilienstein and also Königstein. In addition, a visit to the Felsenbühne Raten is always worth a visit.
