    Caves, grottos, countless boofs and the Hohe Liebe - the fifth stage is an absolutely magical highlight of the entire long-distance hiking trail. You walk between meter-high rock walls and bizarre rock formations of the Elbe Sandstone Mountains. Small side paths constantly lure to fantastic viewpoints. Depending on how much of it you take with you, today's tour has more or less vertical meters.A few steps out of Ostrava lead across fields, then you will disappear for the rest of the day in a fairytale forest made of washed-out rocks and fragrant conifers. The Lusatian snake always leads you along the foot of the massive rocks. So if you want to save meters in altitude, just follow their course. However, that would be a shame, because the most beautiful views are waiting to be discovered by you above the fir tree tops. I have picked out some of the most beautiful ones for you, such as the Hohe Liebe, the exciting Idagrotte and the rear predator. Depending on your condition and curiosity, you can of course make a frequent visit to the sandstone cliffs, some of which are thematically named. Names like the rollmops, herring stone and sprat will surely make you smile one time or another. You can stop off at the Zeughaus after 16 kilometers.This stage is also ideal for a very special kind of micro adventure: in the rocks you will find a number of boofs - large rock overhangs under which you can spend the night outdoors. If you have a sleeping bag and sleeping pad with you, you can split the stage over two days. This gives you more time to explore the rock labyrinths and spend a night under the starry sky.Otherwise the tour ends in Hinterhermsdorf, where you will find cozy guest houses such as “Zum Wanderstübel” and holiday apartments.

    Great tour. Strangely, we did not find the branch to the Ida Grotto. The armory was unfortunately closed. Attention, those who stay in a boofe should remember to take enough water with them for 2 days. Avoid attractions such as the predatory castle on weekends.
