Grosser Baerenstein, viewpoint in Saxon Switzerland
Photograph - Digital Photography
On the top of the Großer Bärenstein there is a fantastic view of the Kleiner Bärenstein mountain and towards Königstein Fortress. A green and densely forested mountain landscape in Saxon Switzerland.
On my hikes in the Elbe Sandstone Mountains, I particularly enjoy the small paths in the midst of nature. Away from the main hiking trails, I love to explore vantage points and remote places where sometimes completely new perspectives on the sandstones open up. This gives me a good view of the region's well-known excursion destinations, such as the Königstein Fortress or the Lilienstein, from a distance. I find it very appealing that you are very close to the tourist destinations and at the same time can enjoy the seclusion of the Saxon mountains.
By climbing the Riegelhofstiege on the north side or the forest hiking trail on the west side, you reach the forested rock plateau of the Großer Bärenstein. The way up is rewarded with beautiful views of the idyllic mountain landscape. During the summer season, the striking shapes of the eroded sandstones meet the lush green of the treetops. This photo is meant to bring the scenic beauty of Saxon Switzerland into your four walls.
