About 30 km (18 mi) upward the Elbe River from [[Dresden]] this is a mountain area made of sandstone. Bizarre stone formations and spectacular views are only a few of the wonderful characteristics of this region that is ideal for hiking, but also for a relaxed day out. For those who like nature, it is surely the most beautiful landscape to be found in Saxony. It can get crowded along the river at summer weekends, if you don't like this, try the cooler days. In late autumn or even winter you will nearly be alone outside the villages. There are also many rock castles and caves within the region, most worth a visit. Further up stream along the Elbe/Labe one enters the Czech Republic. However, the rock formations and the natural spender continue and this region is known historically as the Bohemian Switzerland or ''Böhmische Schweiz'' in German and ''České Švýcarsko'' in Czech.
