Do you dream of scaling one of the most beautiful of European mountains? Saxon Switzerland is full of misty cliffs, hollows, and over 1000 scalable peaks revered by mountain climbers throughout the world. The Lilienstein plateau may remind some globetrotters of Uluru, Australia’s red plateau. The Barbarine formation is another famous site, towering above ancient pines and reminiscent of a tribal mask. Nature lovers adore the area for its endless trees, sandstone mountains, hills, arching rivers, and time-carved rock formations. There are over 10,000 climbing trails on the hundreds of rock formations throughout the mountains. The Bastei bridge with its iconic stone arches traverses some of the peaks, which inspired Romantic-era artists such as Ludwig Richter and Carl Maria von Weber.
