The Elbe, Germany's third-longest river, has shaped many towns and landscapes, such as Dresden, Saxon Switzerland, the Dessau-Wörlitz Garden Realm and Magdeburg.
Some call it Elbe Valley Sandstone Mountains others Saxon Switzerland, but either way most people rave about the bizarre rock formations, steep gorges and splendid views in one of Europe's most beautiful landscapes.
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.
