Today starts with a walk through forest to the famous Barbarine rock needle. Then you walk to the top of the Pfaffenstein, from where you will enjoy fine views to the Lilienstein.

Your day ends at the pretty spa village of Gohrisch. Why not sit back and relax with ‘Kaffee und Kuchen’ at one of the village’s little cafés—satisfied in the knowledge that you’ve earned a treat.
