Favorite thing: There's a tram that travels between Bad Schandau and the Lichtenhainer Wasserfall, along the river Kirnitzsch. It's a distance of 8 km and the yellow historical tram stops at several places from which you can start your walking tours in the national park.
Also, you take the so-called "rafts-men path" in the Kirnitzsch valley. In former times, the men who used rafts had transported wood on the river Kirnitzsch and used this path to take care that the wood didn't get stuck in the river.

Fondest memory: I'll never forget the squeal as the trams ground around the corners. It was disconcerting at times so loud was it.
Another thing that amused me was the heating beneath the seats and the fact that these streetcars still ran....I loved it!
The waterfall at the end of the ride is nothing to get excited about but some of the walks leading out are fairly special.
