We wanted to avoid the announced bad weather. But instead of showers, it rained almost continuously.
From the Gröditz lap we hiked along the Löbauer Wasser through the Gröditzer Skala. Very interesting and in parts rustic to the former railway line.
Small fine round with a slightly longer journey.

After reading all the road closures in the national park yesterday evening, it was clear: the next few weeks we will go elsewhere.
So I drove to Kleinhennersdorf without much planning, assuming that there are also less frequented corners there today. And so it was.
Since the Kleinhennersdorfer Stein is one of my favorite table mountains, we naturally had to go up there. Up here there are many quiet corners and so we first checked out the front area a bit (ascent quite, very steep ...). We continued to Gohrisch and parallel to the Kammweg in the direction of the Elbe. The forest has done a great job here and so we use a "newly created path" to descend. On the opposite side we went up the Nagelweg again to the Forststeig, which we followed to the Täppichtsteig. Amazing how far the traffic noise can be heard. But we were able to look at Bad Schandau from new perspectives for us.
We really enjoyed the way to the Bertheltpromenade. Reminds something of the Haldenweg with the former quarries.
Along the promenade to the Kellerfels and then directly at the edge of the forest and across the meadow back to the starting point.
A rather lonely round on mostly easy-to-walk forest paths with many beautiful views of the Brand, Falkenstein, Schrammsteine, Papstein, etc. And there is also something for friends of old levels. 🙂

Since we always get up early on Easter Sunday and today is the only sunny day of the weekend, we decided to leave after the Easter mass without any real plan. There was time until noon ...
The little round in the area of the Nikolsdorfer Walls was very varied. In the Little Labyrinth, time passes faster than one would like; the many rock lanes all want to be explored.
Continue to the Nikolsdorfer Walls. The rest at the Nikolsdorfer Nadel was lonely and sunny today.
Away from the main path, we squeezed our way through the separated wall shell. Pitch dark and quite cramped
Later we took a wrong turn in the forest, which was churned up by advanced technology, and "had to" make our way to the machine station of the Sachsenforstes.
We used the detour to the Napoleon Stone to look for Schranzl's Easter egg under a little time pressure. Either it has already been found or we searched too superficially. It's a shame.I wish everyone happy Easter holidays. Enjoy the time!

Another day of vacation today. We have brought the Easter walk forward.
The start was at Rothschönberg Castle. Past beautiful old farms, it was a leisurely ride to Heynitz Castle. There we took a long break in the glorious sun and with the relaxing chirping of birds.
Following the old yellow trail markings we came to Munzig. The rest of the way ran along the Triebisch with numerous contemporary witnesses of the local mining history and geological information boards.
Now we have the first light sunburn of the year ...
Highly recommended round tour.

Due to the time change and a certain indolence, we started late today.
Bärnsdorf and Berbisdorf are two very pretty villages. At Berbisdorf Castle, there is work to be done. But that will certainly take a while.
The ways to and from Moritzburg were very quiet and relaxing. As soon as the castle came into the orbit, it became full.
A nice hike with some new corners for us

After a very time-consuming assignment with the in-laws, it was already quite late, so we decided to do an afternoon round from scratch. The suggestion came only recently from Sven FG. Thanks for that. Otherwise we would not have made some detours.
Off we went to the porphyry fan. Very impressive. Continue through the partly snowy Tharandt forest back down into the valley and past numerous informative panels on the mining history of the region back to the home of the Knox incense cones.
A very recommendable area.

Actually, a lot to do and an unpleasant eye infection. But with the weather we wanted to get out for a moment.
But quite a lot of people were drawn to Pillnitz. And since the ferry is very loose, we made a decision.
In the park itself it was quite relaxed. The crocuses were abundant and the buildings and trees were at their best.

Today's hike led us through the vast forests on the Zschirnstein.
We arrived at and on the Großer Zschirnstein on lonely, but unfortunately often badly damaged forest trails. As expected, there was quite a lot of activity there, so we only took a few photos quickly. Unfortunately it was a bit hazy.
After a long rest, it went down the rather steep descent and on a very narrow path halfway around the rock. Beautiful section.
When we arrived at the forest path, we followed it through snow and mud, always along the border to the source, where we met the only fellow hikers.
The way back over the Lange 5 to the Krippenbachweg was still very enjoyable. The rest of the tour was a bit monotonous on the road.
An astonishingly varied round through lonely forest, which should now be easily optimized with better local knowledge.

Since the 15km radius is at least partially canceled, we decided on the Schwedenstein.
The paths were partly a bit icy but mostly easy to walk on.
In glorious sunshine, but in parts quite stiff breeze, we had such a relaxed hike.
It's a shame, of course, that the inns are still closed.
