Bad Schandau is a spa town in the Elbe Sandstone Mountains in Saxony (south-east of Germany). The villages Ostrau, Potelwitz, Schmilka and Krippen also belong to the town of Bad Schandau. Bad Schandau lies about 45 km from Dresden.
The Saxon Switzerland National Park is close-by and you'll find lots of hiking trails in this area. I'm putting my tips about other sights of the Elbe Sandstone Mountains and Saxon Switzerland also on this page.
We stayed in Bad Schandau for one week and walked a lot. The Saxon Switzerland National Park has lots of interesting places and although I feel that we've seen a lot I know that there's so much more to discover! It's a beautiful area with remarkable rock formations and lots of forest. Actually the National Park consists of two parts, close to each other. In the south-east in the Czech Republic then is found the Bohemian Switzerland National Park.
- Pros:close to great hiking trails, nice landscape
- Cons:a rather busy town
The view point Emmabank can easily be reached from Bad Schandau – Ostrau and offers a fantastic view on the Elbe river... more travel advice
On most parking sites where you can start to walk into the National Park you'll find a map and recommended hiking tours.... more travel advice
