Daytrip to Bastei / Steamriver-Boattrip - Castle Pillnitz

Every Thursday directly from the LuxOase:

At 10.00 am our guests start their day trip into the Saxon Switzerland to the famous "Bastei". There, you will have plenty of time to enjoy the beautiful view over valley of the Elbe, the famous Bastei-bridge and the historic "Altfelsenburg" Rathen before you start a short hike downhill to Rathen (approx.2km, 30-40 minutes). Alternatively, there is a transfer from the Bastei to Rathen at a price of 8,00 Euro per person after a reservation by phone: 0172-6559143. At Rathen you will have the chance to take a gondola on the Amselsee, to visit the miniature world of Saxon Switzerland and its railway or to enjoy a meal in a cosy tavern in Rathen. We recommend to collect your tickets at 2.15 pm at the ticket office of the steamriver boats in Rathen. At 2.30 pm the steamriver boat will start its trip taking you along the river Elbe through the romantic and most scenic part of the Elbsandstone mountains (please be aware that it is not possible to reserve seats on board of the steamriver boats). At 4.00 pm guests will arrive at the castle in Pillnitz, the summer residence of August the Strong. There is a famous and huge park to be explored for approximately one hour. At 5.30 pm we will meet at the bus parking for your transfer back to the campsite.
