This could well be labelled "The walk you do when you don't know where to go". It doesn't take you very far, has some fine views and will leave you wanting more.
You can either take the lift up and then head right up the hill or simply walk it all the way from Bad Schandau. Either way you'll be comfortably back inside an hour and a half.
The latter part of the trail comes past a memorial to a man named Luther (pic 4), not of religious fame, soon after you pass the lookout with views over the town.
At the top there's a village called Ostrau and there are some tantalizing glimpses of distant sandstone ramparts that I managed to get to on the Elbleitenweg the next day.
Meantime, we came across an atmospheric bar and cafe (pic 3) and went in for a drink, all smiles. Within 5 minutes we walked out. Frankly, the lady was rude, abrupt, and clearly had missed the door that opened on bedside manner lessons. We ate in town instead.
