      The sun was supposed to stay longer in Upper Lusatia, but obviously hadn't listened to the weather report until the end. The view from Mönchswalder Berg was correspondingly modest, as an accommodating compensation the mountain gave us cold wind and the first crumbs of snow. In between we were worried whether the daylight would reach our destination. The meal in the mountain hut made up for the gasping during the ascent and we saw a more distant summit in the haze. So it's all good.Thanks to Uwe Drescher for the tour, he also lists the other places to stop for a break.

      Don't be surprised at the route. We wanted to work off as many stones as possible from the book "Monuments in the Upper Lusatian Forests" on the Czorneboh (almost all of the explanations come from this). The first ascent comes from Bergverlag Rölke (great tours there). We actually wanted to cross the Hochstein, but the time didn't allow it (the descent to Halbau is not the best option).The stone was only discovered some time ago. There are 2 names chiseled in (T. Matthes and D. or O. Mittasch), including hammer, chisel and drinking bottle. You have to look carefully. It is possible that journeyman stonemasons have made these engravings on their wanderings. The inconspicuous stone is on the ground floor directly on the hiking trail, just before a crossroads and the branch to the devil's pool, so keep your eyes open. Anyone who knows the devil's sink and question hole from the past will be surprised, because back then they were still in the dense forest. Today new forest is growing back, but not signposts. So watch out for the paths that turn to the right.To the Schimmelbuschstein: A French. Officer is said to have killed his horse by a shot from the village of Meschwitz. To compensate, he asked for a mold and 12 loaves of bread. Since no mold could be found in the village, the landlord von Wurschen left his mold. Since the village could not raise the amount of money for it, the community forest was transferred to the landlord, event. also only 2 forest parcels. From then on, the villagers called the forest Schimmelbusch. 114 years later they bought the forest back in 1927, this is what the board refers to. Another source suspects the original event at the age of seven. War.Dr. Konrad Johannes Kaeubler (1849-1924) was Lord Mayor of Bautzen from 1890-1918 and initiated structural reforms in the urban forests in 1901. The hardly accessible northern slope of the Czorneboh was developed for the planned forest use during the forest management period 1902-1911. A forest road on the Czorneboh was named after him, but the name stone is no longer legible.The chimney sweep is at an S-curve directly on the road to the summit, where the marked ridge path crosses. On the top there are 2 shoulder irons, a ladder and the letters P and H engraved (difficult to make out). A blackboard seems to have been set in the front. Perhaps journeymen used this stone as a guide on their hikes, but this is only a guess.We had to leave out the memorial stone on Döhlener Berg (on digital maps Hromadnik) for the reforestation in 1910 and the forest workers or foresters involved, because nowadays there are also forest workers.

      We always combine autumn gingerbread making for dear relatives and acquaintances with a tour in or around the gingerbread city. There is also an interesting city tour from, from which the photo of the Färberhenke on Polzenberg, the oldest part of the city, comes. This time we used a tour suggestion from the Schützenhaus. Wasn't the absolute highlight now, especially the southern bulge in Großröhrsdorf (for those who don't know what Großgage means) was paved with asphalt. Last year's tour over the Schwedenstein was nicer. Well, at least there are enough gingerbread bunkers and at the end we were the first evening guests in the Schützenhaus and were able to enjoy excellent goose legs on Martin's Day. The Schützenhaus is always a must and a large parking lot next door (if the cemetery doesn't bother you and one or the other mourning party).

      Actually we just wanted to go up and have lunch, so a short hike. During the planning it was determined that there was (again) something with Napoleon, so a loop was built in. Then look up "Monuments in the Upper Lusatian Forests" and realize that there are a lot of boundary stones. So a second loop was built in. So it turned into a real hike.The boundary stones with the crossed bishop's staffs (as in the city coat of arms) mark the boundaries of the Bischofswerda city forest. There are quite a few of them. Several (or all?) Also stand on the border between the former diocese of Meißen and the then Bohemian Upper Lusatia. In the first Upper Lusatian border document from 1241, the border was established between Bishop Bruno and King Wenzel I on the Königstein. This border was not yet marked at that time.

      13 premium circular routes are marked in the Dahner Felsenland (leaflet with route and parking space navigator available from Tourist Information, will also be sent). The marking is almost completely without any gaps, you don't need an additional card. These tours truly deserve the title premium, narrow natural paths, magnificent views and countless bizarre rock formations made of red sandstone determine the picture. And it gets pretty exhausting, because it goes up and down again and again. A bit like in Saxon Switzerland.

      Two years ago in Demitz-Thumitz we took part in an interesting guided tour through the "granite village", during which the historic stone saw was also demonstrated. We weren't really expecting much, village and a bit of granite, what was going to happen. In the end we agreed, we'll be back. The place can also be explored individually via the granite route (flyer in the www); the stone saw has to be seen and heard (!) in action.Two balancing people are attached to a house gable in the village. Allegedly, the power went out in a quarry at the end of the day and the two of them never came back to the work level, the rest of the team was gone. So they balanced back on the taut ropes at a lofty height. Whether true or fairy tale, the two cut a fine figure on the colorful house and you shouldn't miss the gag. The house is somewhere in the village, not on the granite route and also not on today's route.We wanted to take as many highlights as possible with us today, that explains one or the other turn. The surprisingly well-preserved monument to the first 5-year plan can only be reached on a bad path, which gets even worse afterwards. Since we still wanted to find the "symbiosis", we just kept booting around the break (proper shoes on the feet and sure-footed one should be). The small street behind the mill pond is already in front of private property.After the last quarry, the highlights become rare, as are the alternative routes. We decided on Neukirch-Ost because the RE also stops there. A wise decision: we heard the sound of the doors closing from the RB. Punctual trains are sometimes also bad ...

      Recently a user (we don't know who, thanks to unknown) reported about the golden cannonball on Napoleonstein near Langenhennersdorf. At first it sounded interesting, we had to explore right away and were not disappointed. Napoleon is supposed to have stood up there and watched his troops. The story with the ball is made up, of course, but a fairytale-like original - something for the eye and the soul. Oh yes, there was a view too.The small bastion above Bergießhübel is barely any view, but it is a cozy rocky circuit including the Zwiesel spring, this time with water. We have a nice souvenir of the bank by the small, nameless pond: a sign reported that the bank was built on the occasion of a birthday for an elderly gentleman in his favorite place and a few years later it was renewed for a new, round anniversary. It's been a few years now, bank is back, but no sign. It is still an idyllic place.Describing the trout trail would mean carrying owls to Athens, one simply has to do it. The bizarre rocks south of the Zwieselbrücke are well known in bouldering circles, and are more of an insider tip for hikers. Anyone who has the desire and imagination for crazy rock formations should look around there in detail; further back there are the Bahratalwand and the book chamber. The trail tracks are a bit confusing, the map doesn't help, just follow your nose and use GPS, the most important rocks are shown on the map. Our entry was not ideal this time either. The first time there were a lot of boulderers that we avoided; as a result, we came across the gendarme from below. This corner can also be explored with a round tour (see tour 05.11.20).

      Hans-Peter & Heidrun are responsible for today's historically interesting and scenic tour, thank you to you. It was a huge surprise for us that the Upper Lusatia extends to the lowlands of the Schraden. We immediately think of the Upper Lusatian mountains and the sweaty climbs. Sweat also flowed this time, but due to the late summer peak temperatures.The goal was Tettau, the northwesternmost corridor of the OL. An obelisk has stood at the lowest point since 2013. This is where the Grenzpulsnitz flowed into the Black Elster and the orienteering ended. The margraviate of Meißen joined to the west and Niederlausitz to the north. We hadn't saved the original tour and were then a bit lost in Tettau, because the stone is not in the place. We were looked at quite helplessly because of our question, only the 5th resident could show us the way (junction 30).A lively local history association is active in the village and you should take some time to explore. The resting place at the Bleichplan is very nice and a look into the pond is worthwhile. In the place reference is made to the historical ownership structure: For centuries the OL belonged to the Kingdom of Bohemia, later to Saxony and after the Congress of Vienna Tettau suddenly belonged to Prussia.To get there you should use the "Tunnelweg". When you drive up, you know why the path is called that and no longer Fleckweg. It's a little detour, but a MUST.

      Actually we wanted to go to the Zschirnsteine. But after the diversions Rtg. Cribs because of the storm in July, the road to Kleingießhübel between the fields behind Cunnersdorf ended rather abruptly and without detour as a dead end. At first we suspected that it might be due to the limestone forest (the helicopter was just taking off before our eyes), but it had washed away a piece of the road. So operational re-decision, back to Cunnersdorf to the bath and from there start to the familiar viewing rocks Spitzstein and Katzfels with the steep ladders. We left out the signal prospect, but it is also worthwhile. The actually unspectacular Müllerstein has a family meaning for us and so we have included a Müller memory circling.Then another briefing and spontaneous expansion of the tour up to the Arschfichte. Since we didn't want to descend again to the monotonous road in the valley, from there the noise of woodcutters reached us and we already knew some uncomfortable stony paths there, we decided on the big curve to the border. A wise decision that brought us more kilometers, but also some nice experiences on comfortable paths. The area back there is so remote you never actually get there.We would like to thank the Bellmann Heimatbuchverlag, who showed us the way to Arschfichte a few years ago. At Komoot, someone has now positioned a highlight, otherwise no signpost in the Cunnersdorf area, which is otherwise so rich on information boards. Should one have seen, convince yourself.

      Idea and planning of the tour by cycling enthusiast Reichenburg. Record and pictures of me. The tour is partly based on the former small railway line from Klingenberg-Colmnitz to Mohorn.
