    It continues wildly romantic and mystical, because today you reach the narrow Kirnitzsch Gorge on the Saxon-Bohemian border and can take a boat tour on one of the quaint barges. The leisurely babbling Kirnitzsch will accompany you from time to time on the sixth stage of the Lausitzer snake.You leave Hinterhermsdorf on a small village road and soon turn back onto soft forest paths. A few times up, a few times down, then you arrive at the Schlegelhütte with the best view. Here begins the wild Kirnitzsch Gorge with its steep cliffs, which the river cut deep into the sandstone. Maybe you would like to discover the gorge with one of the hand-operated barges before you cross it on foot along a narrow path high above the Kirnitzsch.From the gorge you now climb a few meters. The effort is rewarded, because from the Weifberg lookout tower you have a great panorama over the Saxon and Bohemian Switzerland. A few meters downhill, then up again you have reached the guard mountain hut. At the mountain restaurant you will be spoiled with delicious dishes from simple bockwurst to hearty Saupsdorfer game roast with Bohemian dumplings. Once you have eaten your fill, it is downhill a few kilometers for better digestion.At the small stone cave with boofe you meet the Kirnitzsch again. If you still have the time and the courage, you should not miss the ascent through the sky ladder. A long and narrow staircase leads up through a narrowing gorge. When you reach the top, you will be rewarded with a phenomenal view. Then it goes to the final climb to Lichtenhain, your today's destination with a good selection of accommodations.
