The village Hohnstein is located in the beautiful ore mountains of Swiss Saxony approx. 40km south-east from Dresden. The market square with its medieval fort is particularly attractive. Another attraction is also the stone border of Lausitz granite that crosses the town over the Elbsandstein.Favourite excursion destinations in the region: Königstein with its fortress as well as the waterfall in Lichtenhain. There are also many other fortresses and castles in a 10-20 km radius. An excursion to the neighbouring Czech republic is particularly recommended.
