One of the oldest an most important spa resorts of the Saxon Switzerland region of Germany, this beautiful resort city lies nestled in a picturesque valley among lush hills and deep gorges. This port town is also the starting point for tours to the Saxon Switzerland region with its rugged dramatic sandstone cliff formations.
The city is located in the southern Free State of Saxony on the right bank of the Elbe, at the mouth of the little valley of the
Catapults in the Königstein Fortress. It is a famous historic mountaintop fortress, which for centuries was used as a state prison and which is still intact, is one of Saxony's foremost tourist attractions.
