The Elbsandsteingebirge


Here a map of the Elbsandsteingebirge.

There we was in the year 1997 for two visitings. In the summer with the ship from Dresden along the river Elbe to Königstein. And in the autumn.

And here a few little elbsandsteinish Gebirgsimpressions.

The Elbsandsteingebirge is also called as Sächsische Schweiz.

This is the city Königstein with the famous Festung Königstein on the Königstein, a mountain in the Elbsandsteingebirge.

The biggest fortress of Germany, the Festung Königstein, is 261 m over the Elbe.

Here a typically Elbsandsteinrock (the Gansfelsen (gooserock) near the Kurort Rathen (a little city)).
