Blick auf Hohnstein.jpg

Enjoy this hike near Hohnstein through the  valley of Polenz up to the narrow Wolfsschlucht and to the Hockstein. The panoramic view over the Polenz valley to Hohnstein is impressive. Hohnstein is located at a famous geological fault where the Elbe-sandstone meets the Granite. We continue through the Schindergraben over to the Gautschgrotte.

You will learn more about the formation of the Elbe Sandstone Mountains and the current climate change, which has already resulted in unmistakable consequences for the forest.
