A very nice hike in Uttewalder Grund along the Malerweg in the Saxon Switzerland National Park with the Uttewalder Felsentor as a highlight.The grounds in the Wehlen bastion area impress with wild romance and all varieties of green that can only exist. Due to the humid climate, the vegetation is diverse and you are guaranteed to discover things that you have never seen before.

Our tour starts at the parking lot in Stadt Wehlen on the banks of the Elbe. We take the paved road to the right and follow it. She leads us under the yellow house with the inscription "Last stop before Grund und Bastei". Shortly afterwards we turn left at the signpost towards Buschholz and walk uphill. When we arrive at the road, we walk it uphill a little until we turn right into Buschholzstraße and go over it to the national park. At the junction with the National Park information board, we take the path to the right. Soon we reach a bridge, which we cross and then keep left towards the idyllic forest. At the next fork in the road we follow the signpost to the left towards Uttewalder Grund. Arrived at the “Gasthaus Waldidylle”, we follow the path towards the Felsentor (green line marking). Once there, we turn around and walk back the same way until we get to the Märkel monument again and follow the asphalt road towards the city of Wehlen.At the end of the forest, after the national park information sign, it goes uphill to the left. The stairs on the left side take you up to the castle ruins of Wehlen. On the other side, the stairs lead down to the Wehlen market square, from which we reach the parking lot.
