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.
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.
