The very special moment for early risers! Enjoy fresh bread rolls and fragrant coffee on the Königstein before the fortress gates open. Overwhelming views of the Elbe Valley are guaranteed - this is also worthwhile for amateur photographers who might otherwise like to snooze a little longer.

Dates: 25.07., 08.08. and 22.08.2021

Venue Information - Königstein - Fortress

Nestled in the Elbe Sandstone Mountains lies the town of Königstein on the banks of the Elbe. High up above Table Mountain is the fortress Königstein, one of the largest and most beautiful mountain fortresses in Europe. But the fantastic view, which results at almost every point of the 1800 meter long canyon, is worth the climb. In addition to the panorama, the exciting architecture and history, above all, the extremely varied and varied adventure program for young and old sets new standards in European fortress tourism.
