On top a strange rock formation you find these ruins of a 'medieval' castle. Good walks - grand views -good value for money.

Superb scenery and views of Swiss Saxony. The fall colours are also truly awesome. A really nice walk in beautiful sunshine, and to see the Bastei Bridge built so long ago on the rock formations is inspiring. Well worth the visit and the numerous steps!

This is an amazing detour just on the outskirts of Dresden. I took the S-Bahn from Dresden to Kurort Rathen and then made my way to Bastei Bridge. The trek up takes around 40-60 minutes and on the way there are lots of places to...More

First perfect feature - it is completely free to visit the entire place - you may only pay a small money to park your car and / or take the public bus taking you to Bastei. Second perfect feature - it is not yet crowded...More

They are pretty good about cleaning roads during the winter. Just make sure you are bundled up pretty well. It gets below freezing this time of year.
