Bastei has become the most popular day trip destination in Saxon Switzerland. To me it looks like a very green Grand Canyon. From a height of 194m you can enjoy the picturesque panorama and view the miniature villages on the Elbe River. At the start of the bridge you can enjoy a meal in the Panorama restaurant and have a good night sleep in the luxurious Bastei Berghotel.
