    ... in Bad Schandau

    June 5, 2016 in Germany ⋅ ⛅ 21 °C

    Arrived near midday in lovely warm weather. Train trip was easy from Dresden and then a ferry across the Elbe R. The hotel is nicely placed on river front . Noise from trains could be an issue from the freight trains , we will see. Complimentary drink. We then went looking for where a bakery could. Be found for Monday so we can take lunch food. All shut today, only cafes, restaurants open here on Sundays. We then went to a historic tower and went up the lift to a nice forestry walk and a great viewing platform was there to take nice photos of the township. Walked further up to a nice view of a distant hillside possibly in the national park and then we had a cool beer. We descended in the lift and walked to the river through a park and on to the church which looked interesting and a fountain. Then the rain came down & we waited a while before putting on our jackets and came back to the hotel to go to our room with the bags that had been stored. Looked at the info pack for our walk and checked out the map too. Time to pack our day packs for tomorrow's first walk to Kurort Rathen.Read more
