Turn-by-turn directions

The tour starts at the National Park railway station in Sebnitz and follows the red line through Sebnitz via the market to the local history museum, the Africa House and the Caucasus Room, which are definitely worth a visit.

Then continue along the red line in the direction of Lichtenhain until you reach the Panoramaweg, marked with a yellow dot.

From there, you follow the yellow dot for the rest of the tour, first to Lichtenhain, then to Mittelndorf and from Mittelndorf to Altendorf. From Altendorf you continue along the yellow dot to Bad Schandau and before that past Schillerblick and the Schiller Monument as well as the old castle ruins of Bad Schandau before the tour ends at the Elbe quay in Bad Schandau, from where you can then take the ferry back to the station.
