Saxon Switzerland: Hike and Picnic with Local Produce

1. Saxon Switzerland: Hike and Picnic with Local Produce

Enjoy a guided hike through Saxon Switzerland National Park. The 8-10km hike is ideal for beginners and includes breaks along the way. Throughout your hike, you'll be accompanied by a bilingual German/English guide. You can choose from 4 different hiking routes depending on which parts of Saxon Switzerland National Park you'd like to explore. Along the way, you’ll stop for a 3-course picnic made up entirely of local products. Try fresh bread, cheese, seasonal fruits, and vegetables while taking in the views of the sandstone rocks that make up the national park. Your picnic is all sourced locally and helps to support at least 5 local small businesses. The 4 hiking routes available are: Tiny Rocks Above Bad Schandau This tour starts in the scenic village Schöna on a plain high above Bad Schandau. Hike up Kaiserkrone and Zirkelstein to enjoy the breathtaking view of the entire national park. Hidden Rocks and Stunning Views This tour starts in the tiny village of Cunnersdorf with its picturesque old mills along the narrow creek. Follow small paths in dense forest and hike up 3 small sandstone peaks. Gohrisch Sandstone Rock This tour starts in the small town of Gohrisch. Which is the perfect spot to hike up the impressive, highly fissured, and weathered rock of Gohrisch. Discover small gorges and stunning plateaus with a 360° view of the sandstone rocks. Bad Schandau This tour starts at the river Elbe in Bad Schandau, exactly where the region's tourism industry picked up speed with the first steamliner 185-years ago. Hike up a higher plain and take in the views of Schrammstein rocks in the evening lights.

What people are saying about Bad Schandau

We booked this hike as a mother-daughter trip on Mother's Day. The group of 8 people including the guide was very nice. The tour went to the Zirkelstein and the Kaiserkrone, in between a few small picnic breaks with delicacies from the area. The picnic was very lovingly arranged. Christine was very personable and told us a lot about the Saxon Switzerland National Park. We can only warmly recommend the tour.

if I could, I would give 6 or 7 stars it was a super organized experience with an adventure character and great views of Saxon Switzerland off the mainstream tourist paths; Our guide Kristin showed us the diversity of the national park and spoiled us with regional delicacies on a great route. The next snack tour is already booked :)
