June 6, 2020
Nice tour along the old railway line, with tunnels and castle ruins, see link
An adventurous hike through dreamy, lonely landscapes on the northern edge of Saxon Switzerland. The four-hour tour begins and ends at the train station in Lohsdorf (car park opposite) and leads partly on the route of the former Schwarzbachbahn to historic locations in the Sebnitz and Schwarzbach valleys. From Lohsdorf you first follow the old railway embankment in a south-easterly direction, then after about a kilometer along the Long Path left out of the valley and past the Hutberg to Ulbersdorf. In Ulbersdorf stay on the Dorfstraße until almost the other end of the village, then turn right and walk down the main path to the banks of the Sebnitz. Down the river you continue along the stream and follow the route of the Semmeringbahn / Nationalparkbahn three kilometers west to the mouth of the Schwarzbach not far from the former buttermilk mill. In the Schwarzbach valley, a staircase to the left of the Goßdorfer robber castle (steep!)
About 300 meters further into the valley, the path again leads to the old route of the Schwarzbachbahn (directly at the north portal of the 68 meter long Schwarzberg tunnel) and then leads north through the Maulberg tunnel (38 meters long), always following the historic railway embankment back to Lohsdorf.Distance about 12 kilometers373 vertical metersTotal hiking time around 4 hours (without rest)Character: a quiet, historic round tour through romantic valleysRefreshments: Landgasthaus zum Schwarzbachtal in Lohsdorf, Erbgericht in UlbersdorfBy car: Coming from Pirna via Hohnstein and Ehrenberg the S165 to Lohsdorf, parking lot directly opposite the train station.Public transport: National Park Railway U28 from Bad Schandau to Gossdorf-Kohlmühle, in this case the round begins and ends in the Sebnitz Valley.
