Some call it Elbe Valley Sandstone Mountains others Saxon Switzerland, but either way most people rave about the bizarre rock formations, steep gorges and splendid views in one of Europe's most beautiful landscapes.

Dresden continues to be the best starting point for a trip to Saxon Switzerland. In front of the city's Baroque skyline of splendid buildings, which are incidentally made of sandstone, the steamboats cast off and set a course on the Elbe River.

About 40km south of Dresden, Saxon Switzerland (Sächsische Schweiz, aka Elbsandsteingebirge or Elbe Sandstone Mountains) embraces a unique and evocative landscape. This is wonderfully rugged country where nature has chiselled porous rock into bizarre columns, battered cliffs, tabletop mountains and deep valleys.

Autumn is the time to see the place – in all the rich colours the nature can give.

Let’s go there and finally see the beauty of Saxon Switzerland.

We’ll leave on Friday afternoon and come back on Sunday eve.
