Schrammsteine at Saxon Switzerland in Germany

SAXON SWITZERLAND

When autumn meets winter

In late October the first snow might start falling again on the woods and sandstone spires across Saxon Switzerland in East Germany near our hometown Dresden. This month's image shows the view from top of the Schrammsteine, one of many spectacular overlooks that can be accessed by a short 1-hour-hike and by climbing up a lot stairs and ladders.
The trailhead is located near the restaurant "Schrammsteinbaude" on the road to Ostrau, east of the town of Bad Schandau.
