The Bastei Bridge is very popular with photographers and hikers. What you will notice for yourself when you get there. This is a very photogenic place and well worth the hike. This bridge is located in the Saxon Switzerland National Park.
This rock formation has a height of 305 meters. The absolute must-see highlight is the bridge to a viewpoint. It is especially beautiful in the morning and evening. Although it is actually always beautiful here. Even in the rain.
The Bastei Bridge has been an attraction for more than 200 years. In 1824 a wooden bridge was built here to connect the various rocks. And all that for the view over the Elbe river.
You may know the photos from social media. A striking stone bridge that rises above the landscape. And if you visit him you can see far over the landscape.
If you see it yourself you'll understand why the Bastei Bridge is so famous. And do you also want to take pictures of this special place.
If you walk on the Bastei Bridge, you look out on the right bank of the Elbe. That is about 194 meters lower. Especially in the early morning it is often beautiful with the first daylight. And relatively quiet, because this is a popular place.
