    ... in Bad Schandau

    June 5, 2016 in Germany

    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

    Bad Schandau to Rathen

    June 6, 2016 in Germany

    Bad Schandau to Rathen
    After a sumptuous breakfast of muesli, scrambled eggs, cheese, fruits and croissant we left the hotel but was just raining. Umbrella up and zipped off pant legs ,we were off. A steep climb and the sun reappeared so we were sweating madly. Great views from the Galgenberg plateau where wheat & some kind of beans were growing. Walked to a great view from a restaurant/ pension at Brand where we had a dark beer each.Walked through forests to an area for lunch called Gautschgrotte , shady sandstone rocks all around us. This is abseiling country .Instructions were a little confusing when we arrived at Hohnstein and after searching we eventually found the green on white marker. We had a lovely day with all the green moss, lots of fungi ,very tall straight trees. Got a bit confused by incorrect literature but some girls were going our way and together we matched up the map to our route. Climbed a metal staircase between cliffs to a nice view across to Hohnstein and its castle at mount Hockstein before descending into the forest again & to a lake called Aselsee, followed this to Rathen and our accommodation . Walked to shops and the ferry , had icecreams.Dinner to have in the hotel restaurant tonight after our 17 km walk.Read more

    Krippen to Bad Schandau the long way

    June 11, 2016 in Germany

    Well we started the day by taking the ferry across the river to Postelwitz a town up the road from Bad Schandau ( ~ 2.5km). After a short walk we reached a path to our left which was steep for a short time. We crossed a junction and climbed metal ladders etc to reach the Schrammstein . Fantastic views from this famous German lookout.Teenagers were sitting eating their morning tea blocking the tiny access to the best view point! Typical. Returned to a main path and followed the forest path .There were 2 options and only 1 was marked on the map ( yesterday only 1 was marked on the map!). We found a sign pointing towards the opt. Kuhstall. We were very glad we did! It was another natural arch of stone, the 2 nd largest. We had our lunch on the rock platform overlooking national parkland with enormous cliffs.It was a hefty climb up a solid metal staircase between the narrow rock crevasse( one person at a time only) . The trip down was easier - there was an alternative stone and timber route!!! It was good to be able to do both. The crazy walk description mentioned often " just a few steps" .There were a hundred steps to be sure,taking us down to the forest floor. Once we'd left the Cow Barn ( Kuhstall ) we followed a path to Lichtenhainer waterfall. What a disappointment - it was so small and tucked away between a hotel and it's beer garden. The silliest thing also was that they block up some of the water flow and then release it so people get good photos. We had a nice dark beer anyway sitting in the garden. We walked down the road to see the Beuthenfall waterfall. The buildings beside it were derelict & a fence across the viewing of it . This was an even smaller one. The walks notes ended the walk here and they simply said take a bus back to Bad Schandau, but they recommended going on the historical tram Kirntzschtalbahn back. We decided to walk. This added on several kms but it was beside the river and took us on rough paths requiring chain fencing ropes for some exposed ascents and descents. Very worthwhile.Picnic dinner planned in our room with cheeses, salami,chips, nice bread, wine , dessert and TV.( even though we can't understand German! It's quite hilarious watching Eddie Murphy and Jacki Chan being dubbed!) . I had my pacer counter on today - approx 11 km the route paper said. Well we walked 26.8 km.Read more

    Über einen schmalen, kaum sichtbaren Pfad kamen wir zur Domstiege. Ein selten begangener Weg, aber dank einer App für spannend befunden.
    Vom Kleinen Dom zum Großen Dom liefen wir über den Malerweg, die Sandlöcher, den Jordanweg und den Nassen Grund zur Haltestelle der Bimmelbahn.

    Bad Schandau

    August 21 in Germany

    Auto packen war heute ausschließlich meine Aufgabe. Dietrich war noch in Bayern auf Geschäftsreise, so dass ich alle Zeit der Welt hatte zum Packen. Gegen 18:30 Uhr konnten wir endlich aufbrechen.
    Mit Tankstop und Päuschen bei Megges waren wir 22:00 Uhr in Bad Schandau gelandet. Schnell haben wir das bisschen Gepäck in die Wohnung getragen und mit einem Fußradler an der Elbe ließen wir den Abend ausklingen.Read more
