Views of rock formations, views from rock formations, and the descent to the Elbe River - Variant 1

  • On foot
  • For experienced walkers

Shorter variant:

From Brand, we head directly to Rathen along the red route. At first, we continue along Brandstrasse road, then the marked route heads left and descends through the Schulzengrund sandstone ravine to the base of Polenzthal Canyon. We follow the valley for a short while past the Walterdorfer Mühle former mill, and then the red route climbs to the left to the road (a small parking lot, views of Gamrig cliffs and toward Bastei), and again downward along a forest trail to Kurort Rathen. Take the well-known road among lodging houses to the ferry – see longer variant.

This route can be completed in 3 hours (without stops).
