      The Hohnsteiner Kasper is well known in Saxon Switzerland. Its creator, Max Jacob, had been based in Hohnstein with his puppet theater since 1928. From here the characteristic figures with the carved heads conquered the world. A puppet stage - first at Hohnstein Castle and later in its own puppet theater - attracted guests from far away. The famous hand puppets are still made in Hohnstein. The Max Jacob Theater invites young and old to performances. There is also an annual Hohnstein puppet show.

      The Quirlmassiv is known for its multitude of caves. It is especially exciting for children to explore them!
      A narrow rock lane leads to the Pfaffenstein, where many different views and interesting rock formations can be discovered. It gets exciting again on the steep descent through the "eye of the needle".

      The Königstein Fortress is one of the classic excursion destinations in Saxon Switzerland, which attracts hundreds of thousands of visitors from all over the world every year. We want to conquer the fortress, which was once considered impregnable, on foot. This hike offers the opportunity to combine a tour of the Königstein Fortress and immersion in its 800-year history with a varied hike.

      Those looking for peace and solitude will find it on this hike. The forests south of Cunnersdorf are criss-crossed by wide forest paths, but also by many small, idyllic hiking trails. This tour leads on three of the smallest table mountains. The rocky lookout pulpits offer a wonderful view over the vast forests to the table mountains of Saxon Switzerland.

      From the health resort Gohrisch it goes gradually uphill, with wonderful views to the Lilienstein. We reach the rock plateau of the Gohrisch through the narrow Falkenschlucht. Some climbing skill is required for this ascent. If that is too tricky for you, you can also choose the normal route. Two wonderful views reward the effort of the ascent. The second part of the hike is a little more leisurely because there are hardly any differences in altitude to overcome, but there are surprising things to discover close to the ground.

      "Those who walk towards the sun leave the shadows behind."On this hike you will be amazed at the small, interesting paths there are around the village of cribs!
      On these hiking trails and paths we reach the Kohlbornstein, which is located high above the cribs. For a while it goes along the Malerweg, the Caspar-David-Friedrich-Weg and at the end on the Sonnenuhrenweg. There is a lot to discover!

      Have you ever consciously looked at the ground you step on during your hikes?
      We all perceive it as the underground on which we stand and build, but very few know what it can do with it.
      On this educational trail you get an insight into the world of the soil and its direct connections with the flora. In close proximity you will get to know different types of soil and their potential uses.
      Go on a little journey "underground"!

      We start at the Markt, Hohnstein bus stop and follow the Pechhüttenweg north through the town above the town church. Soon we come into the forest and now walk along the slope on the Klötzerweg. After a while we come to a small stream, branch off to the left and walk slowly down the Kälbersteig into the Polenz valley (yellow line). We come to Polenztalstraße, turn left here (red dot) and walk a bit along the street, past the Rußigmühle, to the next intersection. At it we go to the right, over the bridge and immediately to the left again on the Polenztalweg (red dot and diagonal green line).In the deep, canyon-like Polenz Valley, the dipper can be observed with a little luck. It is the only songbird able to dive in running waters: the brown bird with the white patch on the chest hops from stone to stone, dives, runs upstream underwater with slightly spread wings and searches for small aquatic animals.It goes a little further along the Polenz to the restaurant Polenztal. Shortly after the bar we branch off to the left and hike up the Schindergraben / Malerweg (blue line, diagonal green line). On the way we pass the remains of the former bear garden.The remains of the wall were originally part of a bear pen, created for the breeding and care of bears, which were used for hunting at the Saxon Court - in the royal seat, in the castle courtyard, on the Altmarkt and in the Großsedlitz Garden. Bears kept breaking out. The garden existed until 1756.Once at the top we keep to the left in the direction of Hohnstein (blue and yellow lines) and walk again, this time above, past the remains of the wall of the bear garden until we finally reach the first houses of Hohnstein. Here we turn left and walk below Hohnstein Castle until we reach the parking lot at the sewage treatment plant. We keep to the right and go uphill, crossing Dresdener Straße, back to the starting point of the tour.The tour is suitable for older children and dogs.Starting point: Hohnstein market
      Arrival by public transport:
      With S1 to Pirna, from here with bus 237 (direction Sebnitz) to Markt, Hohnstein
      Parking: Paid parking lot at the Hohnstein sewage treatment plant below the castle

      The starting point is the parking lot or the oak bus stop in Hohnstein. We walk past the playground, down into the village and at the town hall to the left (following the signs to Gautschgrotte). The small road leads into the forest and we now follow the green line and slash (nature trail sign). It goes at almost the same height along the rocks. After a few minutes we take a detour to the left to the Gautsch grotto.The Gautsch grotto is one of the most famous layer joint caves in Saxon Switzerland. It owes its name to Karl Gautsch, who fought for democratic rights during the German Revolution of 1848/1849. The riot was suppressed militarily in 1849. Karl Gautsch was sentenced to 20 years in prison for participating in the uprising.Back from the detour to the grotto, we continue hiking. Later, the terrain widens a little, we take a detour to the left to the thief's cave.We hike slightly uphill and keep right at the next fork in the road (green line). After some time we come to an intersection with a red line, we follow this sign for a short distance to the left / straight ahead and turn right at the next intersection (green line and slanted green line). Soon a wide, unmarked path branches off to the left, we turn into this and continue hiking. We cross a wide hiking trail, pass the Waldborn, cross the Brandstrasse (wide forest path with a blue line) and hike slightly uphill to the edge of the forest. Here we meet a path (green line) and branch off to the left. It goes along the edge of the forest, then we turn right (following the signs) across a meadow to the Napoleonschanze.The Napoleonschanze (Schanzenberg) is an artificial earth wall up to 4 meters high, which had to be built in 1813 by the residents of the Hohnstein-Lohmen Office under the most difficult conditions in order to secure the Napoleonstrasse from the Königstein Fortress to Stolpen Castle. One day after completion, the French army moved into the position. There followed costly battles on both sides of the war opponents. After Austria allied itself with the Russians and Prussians against the French and Saxon troops in August 1813, Napoleon's defeat was sealed with the Battle of Leipzig.After visiting this place steeped in history, we continue to hike (green line) downhill, pass the outdoor pool and keep to the left when we arrive at the road.The tour is suitable for children and dogs.Arrival by public transport:
      With S1 to Pirna, there with bus 237 (direction Sebnitz) to Eiche, Hohnstein.
      Arrival by car:
      Parking is available at the roadside or at the Eiche car park (day ticket: € 5) in Hohnstein.

      None other than the developer of the Upper Saxon Switzerland, Pastor Wilhelm Leberecht Götzinger, said that when visiting Hinterhermsdorf, the first step must be to the Weifberg in order to enjoy the magical view.
