Dear Hiking Friends,

also in 2023 we can say again on „Eschd säggs’sch“: „Back de Rennsemml’n und’n Fumm’l in dein Beit’l, wir ladsch’n ma ins nuff Gebärsche“ ( or for the non-Saxons-Visitors: „Put the Shoes and your Clothes in your Backpack, we’re going to the Mountains“ ).

For the Saxon Naturist Days we have selected nine varied Hikes of different Levels of Difficulty. In almost all difficult Passages, there is the Possibility of avoiding the Ascents or Descents with a small or sometimes a slightly larger Detour, in order to enable all Participants to take Part.

Nevertheless, a minimum Level of Fitness and a Head for Heights are required since the Majority of the Paths in Saxon Switzerland and Zittau Mountains are mountainous and often lead along steep Slopes. In order to reach the famous Views, it is necessary to do a short Climb in some Places, but you don’t have to master these Challenges alone; there are always enough helping Hands in the Group. There are often Stairs or Ladders to facilitate climbing. You can leave your professional climbing Equipment with Harness and Rope at Home; there are other Providers in the Region for that.

Just a Tap away: Our Web-App …

We want to make it as easy as possible for you to view the Programme during the Naturist Days, even in Regions with weak Mobile Reception. During our Re-Design, we came up with the Idea of developing a Web-App that feels like a native App. To add the Web-Clip / App to your Home Screen, simply open the following Link in Safari ( or any other Browser ), tap and then select „Add to Home Screen“ :


Ohhh and by the way: If you open our Website on an iPhone with an OLED-Screen, our Website will automatically switch the Theme to save your Battery.

Even easier: Our Mac-App …

At the beginning of the Year, another Step followed, because in Addition to a Re-Organization of our Hiking Routes, a native App for macOS was developed in February, which has been enhanced with numerous Features in the recent Months. This is how we want to offer our App Users something Exclusive: In the Menu „Favorites“ you will find a Submenu for the upcoming Naturist Days, no matter if they take place in Saxony or Thuringia.

Open Download-Page ( German )

You don’t have a Mac ? Then we have to disappoint you, because the fresäna-App is only available for macOS – an Implementation for other Operating Systems is not planned.

Organization of the Hiking Days

We start our Hikes at 10 AM at the respective Starting Points. Our Accommodation in Ottendorf is right at the Edge of our Hiking Area, so it shouldn’t take more than half an Hour’s Drive. Since the Hiking Parking Lots in the Summer Months are always quite busy ( despite Parking Fees of around € 3 to € 5 ) we will again implement the proven Method of traveling together. We meet at Parking Spaces outside the Hiking Area and continue to the Starting Point. We are on the road with as few Vehicles as possible. Anyone who has found a Place to stay in the Vicinity of the Accommodation can come as well. If you are not staying overnight in Ottendorf, please organize a Lift yourself, and come directly to the Starting Point. Public Transport is also possible: If you decide to use this, please let us know in good time so that we can wait for the Bus or train to arrive at the Starting Point.

There are enough Breaks during the Hike to eat the Refreshments you have brought with you. As in previous Years, we have planned a Stop at a Restaurant at the End of each Hike.

Following the Success of the past few Years, we are offering a Rubber Dinghy Tour again this Year, which will take us along the River Elbe. Doing so will give numerous Swimming Opportunities, and we will visit a famous Ice Cream Parlor. As an Alternative to the Boat Tour, there will be the Opportunity to go hiking.

At the end of each Day we want to meet you at our Holiday Accommodation, the „Ottendorfer Hütte“, around 9 PM, to provide a brief Overview of the Highlights and Route Variants of the following Hiking Day.


Again this Year we are offering Accommodation in the Area of our Hikes that has enough Capacity to house a large Part of the Hiking Participants. In Addition to two Apartments with four Beds, there are four other Residential Units each with three Beds. There is also a large Dining Room and a Sauna in the Basement ( for a Fee ). This Year we will prepare Breakfast in the Holiday Home itself. There is also the Possibility to put together a Picnic for the Day.

By Car from Dresden or Pirna: Drive on the A17 to the Pirna Exit ( 6 ) and from there towards Pirna on the B172a. Alternatively, use the S176 and drive onto the Pirna Ramp Sachsenbrücke S177 and cross the Elbe. Continue here to the Pirna-Graupa Exit and then follow the Signs to Bastei. Behind Lohmen at the P+R Car Park Bastei there is a Petrol Station. Turn off to Bastei, and leave on the right and continue to follow the S165 to Sebnitz Roundabout.

Programme for the Week

Our varied Tours this Year focus on Saxon Switzerland, as well as the Zittau Mountains. Along the way we will often get Views of Highlights of other Days’ Hikes. Where relevant, a Tour may have Variations with and without challenging Sections.

Of course we don’t want you to starve after such a long Drive, so if you arrive by 7 PM, you can sit at the large Table in the Holiday Home „Ottendorfer Hütte“ at Hauptstraße 34 in 01855 ( Sebnitz ) Ottendorf and our Chef will delight your taste Buds and spoil you with all Kinds of culinary Delicacies.

Caspar David Friedrich once said: „I need the Solitude for the Conversation with Nature“. In the Course of this Hike we would like to reflect on the Things that are really important and at the same Time pay a visit to the Stone Beauties of Oybin. We would like to invite you to be Part of a Hike that will take us to the most bizarre Sandstone Formations of the Zittau Mountains: The Stone Zoo at the Töpfer …

The Castle Hohnstein once belonged to the Bohemian Noble Family of Berka von der Dubá, later the Castle, as well as the neighboring „Tyrgartten“ became the Property of the Elector. We will follow in the Footsteps of the Berka Family and listen to some of the Stories along the Hohnstein Nature Trail, as well as dive into the Depths of the Gautsch Grotto. And maybe we will find some Surprises, which the Drudge of Hohnstein left us ?

Officially it does not exist, the Nature Trail „After the Forest Fire: Back to Nature“, but we would like to give you deeper Insights during this Hike: How long does it take for the Forest to regenerate after such a drastic Experience ? What Performance was demanded of Man and Material during the Firefighting ? During the Excursion into Practice we will show you vividly what many People only spread their Knowledge about theoretically. You will be amazed at the Progress that Nature is able to make in a short Time …

Journey by Public Transport ?

It does not look like that this Year. After intensive Research we decided to rent a Bus that will take us from the Bus Stop „Ottendorf, Ortsmitte“ ( Departure 9:00 AM ) to the National Park Station Bad Schandau ( arrival approx. 10 AM ). We cannot and do not want to expect you to travel for more than an Hour or almost two Hours ( depending on the Connection and Arrival Time ), as the Distance can be covered in a much shorter Time by Car.

The Hike: Nu entscheid’sch dor’ma …

We don’t want to dictate which Hike you ultimately take, so we’ve put together a small Selection in which you can choose to arrive by Car or Public Transport. The three Variants include various Difficulties, just have a look at our Cloud …

A Hike without a Rucksack, wouldn’t that be nice ? Well in Saxon Switzerland this is not an easy Task, but the Hike to Gohrisch and Papststein offers you at least a small Route where you can do without it …
