Saxon Switzerland Bastei Bridge


The most famous bridge in Saxon Switzerland

This excursion destination is definitely on the agenda of every tourist group that is drawn to Saxon Switzerland: The Bastei Bridge in the famous rock formation Bastei, which leads across the 40-metre-deep Mardertelle Gorge to the ruins of the rock castle Neurathen. The Bastei Bridge has a total length of only 76 metres and has a total of seven arches. Every year, around 2.5 million visitors come to see the Bastei Bridge with its sensational distant view – on a weekend with good weather alone, up to 50,000 people can visit the bridge. No wonder, then, that the Bastei Bridge is by far the most famous structure in the Saxon Switzerland region.
