The Bastei Bridge
You’ve often heard the phrase, “Go west, young man”. Well, we say, “Go north, young man”. Go north into the north of Germany, to Saxony, a state of Germany that is divided into two parts – Saxony-Anhalt in the east and the Free State of Saxony in the west. Travel to the north of the Free State of Saxony and the north of the Elbe-Labe lowland, And you will reach, one of the most famous rock formations in Germany, a bridge of sandstone that connects the rocks of Bastei with the ruins of the Neurathen rock castle.
The Bastei Bridge spans the Elbe Canyon and the old Neurathen Castle. The Bastei Bridge is 305 m above sea level. It is technically built of two arches. As you walk on the Bastei Bridge, look back and you’ll see the ruins of Neurathen castle. The Elbe River flows under the Bastei Bridge. The sandstone bridge was built in 1850. The bridge is a fine example of the work of a great architect, Hermann Wilker.
Bastei is truly something exceptional – a romantic bridge high on rocks overlooking the Elbe river canyon and its curving part along with a town of majestic rocks and ruins of something that is hardly believed to have been incapability of human beings.
Konigstein Fortress in Saxon Switzerland Germany

It was built on a rock which towers 247 metres above sea level and offers an unforgettable view of the surrounding area. The fortress has been listed as a UNESCO World Heritage site since 1999 for its exceptional significance.
The world-famous “Wanderer above the Sea of Fog” oil painting with the back of a hiker with a walking stick, gazing across the bare rocks was inspired by the rock formations of Bohemian and Saxon Switzerland and makes this place truly unique.
