Overview

Attending at a conference in Dresden I managed to have a short visit to this world of sandstone.

The route of the hike was the following: Rathen - Bastei bridge - Amselfall - Honigsteine - Rathen.

The scenery was great, but as the area of Bastei is probably the most popular part of the region, it was rather crowded and noisy. As an opposite, the rocks of Honigsteine were totally deserted.
