Saxon Switzerland National Park

The national park was established in 1990 and covers an area of 93 km2. This territory is one of the most valuable and stricly protected parts (core) of the National Park, where natural forests have been preserved. Together with the Bohemian Switzerland National Park, it creates a large complex of ecosystems consisting of sandstone rocks and forests with minimal human settlement. The Administration of Saxon Switzerland National Park (and Protected Landscape Area) is based in Bad Schandau, where there is also the National Park House featuring a multimedia exhibition available for tourists.
