    On the first stage of the Lausitzer Schlange long-distance hiking trail, you leave the city of Dresden further behind and dive into the picturesque area of the Dresdner Heide. You hike through the idyllic Prießnitz valley and pass hidden castle complexes.Your adventure along the Lusatian snake starts in the Bühlau district of Dresden. The easiest way to get here is by tram line 11 from Dresden-Hauptbahnhof. After about 40 minutes of driving to the easternmost corner of the city, get off at the Ullersdorfer Platz terminus and start your journey.After just a few steps, the houses will disappear behind you and you will find yourself in the forest area of the Dresdner Heide. On soft paths you hike past the picturesque Haarweidenstausee and soon meet the Prießnitz, which winds through the valley in many turns. Before you leave the fragrant forests, you stroll through the Langebrücker Saugärten, a former hunting area of the old electors. Then the forest opens in front of you and it goes over wide dirt roads to Hermsdorf with its pretty pond facilities. On the way there, the Jägerklause with typical Saxon home cooking invites you to stop.After you have crossed the busy A4 motorway via a safe pedestrian bridge, you will find overnight accommodation in cozy guesthouses such as the Old Pond House or Zwei Linden in Ottendorf.
