Tips and hints
If you have a chance we would recommend a visit to the “Felsenburg”, the entrance just before Basteibrücke.
You can easily shorten your walk by taking the old-timer bus to the center of Wehlen. The so called“Bastei-Kraxler” takes you there in about 25 minutes and leaves hourly from 10.25hrs to 16.25hrs, exceptfrom 13.25hrs. (€ 5.00 per person).
The App is designed to be used in conjunction with our traditional documentation. We have recently embarked on a conversion initiative to bring the two elements together, and this itinerary will be covered in due course.
In the meantime, using the two elements alongside each other should go a long way to ensure you have a safe, enjoyable and problem free day.
