Though the Sächsische Schweiz in general is incredibly beautiful, this area is one of the most beautiful areas. The hiking trails lead you to caves and peaks alike, and the various Aussichtspunkt (lookout point) provide breathtaking views of the area.

Getting There 

The area has several different parking possibilities. The GPS location given indicates the Beuthenfall parking area, right next to the train station.

You can park in:
Schmilka (two parking possibilities)
Either park right before getting in the town or park in the large parking lot on the right. Hike uphill keeping on trails leading you in the direction of Schrammstein. This is optimal for reaching the southern-most climbing areas.

Park at the Kirnitztalbahn train stop Nasser Grund.

Park at the train stop indicated in the GPS coordinates.

These latter two are optimal for reaching the northern-most areas.
