Romantic Rocks - hiking through Saxon Switzerland: Check-in presenter Lukas Stege hikes up to the Bastei rock formation, through the picturesque Kirnitzsch Valley and attempts to take on a sheer rock face.
Königstein is one of the biggest hilltop fortresses in Europe. It's perched some 200 meters above the Elbe River on a rocky plateau. Never in its entire history was it taken by enemy forces.
This highland region on the Elbe is just an hour's drive from Dresden and ideal for hiking and climbing. The best views are from the Bastei Bridge and Königstein Fortress.
