Short but crisp hike on the day of departure. Goodbye Elbe Sandstone Mountains! was really fun :)
I think the Bastebrückei is completely overrated. Certainly an impressive building and maybe the bridge had its charm before the construction of the hotel, restaurant, asphalted areas, parking, souvenir shop and access via concrete stairs.
However, the area around it has a lot to offer demanding paths and trails.

So today was such a day ... A path ended in front of a rope. A rope! Then it went 5-6m vertically up the wall. Over a steep slope because that's where the path ended. It was supposed to be a hiking tour, a small climbing tour - although I know that the transition here in the area is sometimes fluent ...
Maybe I was just too stupid to find the right path. But wasn't the only one who searched. Unfortunately the only one who had to go back up the holy stairs :(
Has given me over 4 additional km and 70 vertical meters.
Otherwise of course again beautiful and impressive landscape!

Wonderful hike inspired by Niko. Start at the Märchenwald car park and, fittingly, numerous enchanted and fairytale-like sections. A lot of shade, so it should also be pleasant to hike in summer. I missed one or two branches. Doesn't matter on the track. If you go a nice dangle more. Under no circumstances should you miss the ring wall. You can also expand it at will. Finally, a detour to the Altenberg Cathedral.

The start of the stage was promising, but overall the route dragged on quite a bit. A lot of forest but mostly long walks without much variety (in contrast to stage 2 and 3).
In contrast, there were suddenly a few short, very steep climbs, some of which appeared on difficult ground.
