Hinterhermsdorf Off The Beaten Path: 2 reviews and 10 photos
The "Königsplatz", a sandstone rock with an elevation of 437 m, only a short walk (approx. 45 min) away from the village offers gorgeous views of the hills and vast forest in the National Park. From the village turn south towards Buchenparkhalle and from there it is signposted.
I went there numerous times, often in fall when the colours of the leaves were wonderful. I could even see the tv tower of the Czech town Decin and numerous hills in the Czech republic.
The viewing point was named after the Saxon King Friedrich August II. (1797-1854) who enjoyed to come to this place. A forrester with name Voigt made the rock accessible in 1836. A wooden tower for even better views was built in 1879 but torn down in 1902 because of its bad shape. A shame!
