Bastei Sächsische Schweiz
Probably the most spectacular region in Saxony is the Elbe Sandstone Massif. Table mountains, the narrowest of gorges and wooded meadows create a fascinating juxtaposition. The Saxon Switzerland National Park is one of the jewels in Germany's scenic crown. Strange rock needles, cliffs and deep gorges alternate with wide plains, large, silent forests and valleys, looked down upon by table mountains. Large sections of the neighbouring "Bohemian Switzerland" have also been designated a national park. With a little patience it is possible to spot otters, falcons and even the occasional lynx.
