    Your twelfth stage takes you through the most beautiful landscapes of the Zittau Mountains. Washed out sandstone formations will always remind you of Saxon Switzerland, while the Lusatian snake slowly winds its way to Zittau.From the Sonnebergbaude you follow the Oberlausitzer Bergweg for a few kilometers, then the long-distance hiking trail turns to the Falkenstein. From the striking sandstone and climbing rock you have a great view back to the Lausche. A little later, a small path leads to the Big and Small Organ, volcanic witnesses of earth's history that look like miniature basalt columns. Of course I will also send you up to the Carolafelsen. From "my" rock you have a beautiful view of the Jonsdorf rock city and Jonsdorf itself, which you only touch on the edge.The path winds on to Oybin with its impressive castle ruin, which towers on the steep rock faces of the Oybin mountain. If you don't want to walk that much today, you can chug into the stage destination with the Zittau narrow-gauge railway. Historic steam trains run several times a day almost all year round and rattle comfortably through the idyllic mountain landscape. Then you will miss the unique view from the potter with his bizarre rock gate and chalet for a cozy retreat.At Olbersdorfer See you can cool your feet in the clean water and bury them on the sandy beach, then it goes to the city center of Zittau. Here you will find many good accommodations, shops, restaurants and of course a train connection.
