The “Bastei” is an impressive sandstone formation and a natural monument

I saw this impressive Rock formation from a distance when looking afar from the Königstein castle in Saxony.

If you want to go there off the beaten track through the Saxon- Switzerland, then you should choose the path through the “Höllenschlund” gorge.

Off the marked trail, an old path leads down to rock steps into the gorge, which is framed by huge sandstone cliffs and rich vegetation.

Past the “Steinernen Bären” you can then return to the trail and enjoy the magnificent view from the Bastei across the Elbe Valley.
