The Bastei


#travelstories The Bastei is a rock formation towering 194 meters above the Elbe River in the Elbe Sandstone Mountains of Germany. Reaching a height of 305 meters 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.

The spa town of Rathen is the main base for visiting the Bastei. The Bastei has been a tourist attraction for over 200 years. Definitely a place to check out 😍
