An inspiring day out. Just EUR12 for a return train ticket from Dresden to Rathen. Take the ferry over the Elbe (EUR2 return) and then just walk! Amazing rock formations when you get up to the Bastei bridge.

It is a breath taking view. The Bastei is a rock formation towering 194 metres above the Elbe River in the Elbe Sandstone Mountains of Germany. Word of advice, we went there during the winter and the way down is by concrete steps. These steps...More
