Hiking Highlight (Segment)
Narrow, deeply cut valley of the Wesenitz, it is also called the gateway to Saxon Switzerland. The famous Malerweg, which has inspired many artists, leads through here.
In the valley you pass the ruins of an old hydroelectric power plant, the largest Wagner monument in the world and the Lochmühle, which has been closed for several years. Everyone can be fabulously spotted and watch as nature slowly recovers its territory.
To this way I think a nice description: "Stumbling and forgotten places". I have created a small picture gallery, and wanted to make a reference to "Lost places", because of which there are many in this way. It's a pity that of all the hospitality was on the "track", so to speak.
For the many hyper in search of the decayed, this way is highly recommended!
The starting point of the first stage of the Malerweg is the Liebethaler Grund. Although there were other variants of painter's paths that somehow formerly haunted the Saxon Switzerland, and they all actually started in the area of Dresden, but the newly created Malerweg starts in the Liebethaler reason. The new Malerweg is marked with a few signposts and a few tablets and is therefore relatively easy to find. From the old factory building of the re-commissioned Pirna-Liebethal waterworks, it goes into the Liebethaler Grund.
