Majestic Places - they impress and inspire

On the way to the impressive sandstone rocks we stop in Pillnitz. It is the former summer residence of the Saxon rulers and invites for a leisurely walk through the park, where you can see the oldest Camelia of Europe. This leisure park is man made but nature formed the bizarre rocks and cliffs of the area known as Saxon Switzerland. Both will impress you. The view from the Bastei rock is simply breathtaking.
One of the table mountains is crowned with the Königstein fortress. Let's conquer it together!
