💬 Nice Report by Roman 🥾

On June 5, we did our first group hike to Sächsische Schweiz this year. Once again, many thanks to everyone who joined! 🤗

This is an amazing island of nature in Germany that you want to visit again and again. We really enjoyed visiting this place.😊

I will briefly tell you about our trip, for those who would also like to visit this place.

It takes about 4.5 hours by train to get there. But in good company, time does not fly by, we played board games and, of course, the mafia!😁 This place is located near Dresden, so we made the last change there. Yes, we bought a group ticket for Thuringia, it is also valid in Sachsen and Sachsen Anhalt for all types of transport - as a result, from 5 people, the ticket price is 11.5 euros

We arrived at the Kurort Rathen station and from there, after passing a couple of mituns, we took a ferry, it runs often - every 20 minutes. We bought tickets immediately there back for 2.5 euros.

The path runs through a wonderful German village with various cafes and souvenir shops. And from there we immediately began to climb to the top along the route. And then huge stones, gracefully overgrown with vegetation, begin to appear in front of you. The route is already fenced off and goes sequentially, with small branches for incredibly beautiful panoramic views 😍 - a river flows below, along which graceful rocks rise as a huge powerful wall. And then you go inside these huge rocks, making your way like a labyrinth with a minotaur to the bridge, but there you will find even more breathtaking views and, of course, crowds of tourists 🙂 There are also paid observation platforms for 2.5 euros, but to be honest, there are more than missing out without it.

There are cafes and toilets at the top, where we took a good break before the next march.

We walked slowly, enjoying every view and really want to enjoy it forever. And even the sun smiled at us that day🌞, despite the bad weather forecasts, further emphasizing the beauty of the rocks.

If you look closely, you can see people on the opposite side who are climbing the rocks to the top or are already resting at the top.

After a pause, we walked around to the opposite side.

It is there that you can more fully feel the nature, and enjoy the new panoramic views in a quieter way, because the crowds of tourists no longer reach there. Here I can recommend and pause, in my opinion an ideal place to relax. There will be several such places. Further, in search of a descent downward, we began to pass between huge rocks, which, like skyscrapers, rose above our heads. If you have time, you can walk along the rocks, but there is no safe descent to the bottom, so we turned back. And if you go straight, there will be a very good descent. Where another wonder of this place opens up, an incredible gorge between these mighty rocks, where each stone is beautifully painted with moss. This place is reminiscent of Drachen Schlucht, but the sheath of the rocks is certainly breathtaking in places.😲

And after the descent, we went along the stream back to the village, which is about 1.5 km. As a result, the entire route was only about 5-6 km, but it left an indelible impression on our hearts. While waiting for the train, we rested on the banks of the river, admiring the beautiful view of the majestic cliffs. Tired, but satisfied, we returned home the long way, of course, having fun playing the mafia, and not only.😊

In the warmest day of the week, we decided to go to Ostbad for swimming, playing volleyball, and sunbathing. It was a cool afternoon.

After the event we decided not to go to Jenzig and instead we attended a concert organized by university in the paradise park.

We were motivated by the heat to go to a lake. As last year we combined it with a hiking tour: We started from Jena-Nord, where we visited the church of Zwätzen.

On the hills we finally found some shadow and also had an introduction round. After crossing the forest we reached Neuengönna, a beautiful village with old nice houses.

A little bit later we arrived in Porstendorf, where some people took the train back to Jena. Most of the participants joined to the lake where we had a lot of fun: swimming, boating, playing frisbee and volleyball.

We stayed until the evening, because it was very warm and relaxing!
