Tiske Walls - Riverboat in Germany

Tiske Walls in the Czech Republic
on the edge of the Labské sandstones in the village Tisá where you can find a picturesque sandstone town.

We took the steamer from Konigstein to Pirna. We could enjoy views of spectacular rock formation towering 194 metres above the Elbe River in the Elbe Sandstone Mountains of Germany. Reaching a height of 305 metres above sea level, the jagged rocks of the Bastei were formed by water erosion over one million years ago. They are situated near Rathen, not far from Pirna southeast of the city of Dresden and are the major landmark of the Saxon Switzerland National Park. They are also part of a climbing and hiking area that runs over border into the Czech Republic and Bohemian Switzerland.
