Der Malerweg

On June 10, 2006, one of the most wildly romantic German roaming routes was revitatized. Already 200 years ago travellers were enthusiastic about the unexhaustible wealth of bizarre rock formations, wildly romantic gorges, sublime table mountains with breath taking views.

Many painters of later generations followed their tracks through the Elbe River Sandstone Mountains, among them such famous painters like Caspar David Friedrich, Carl Gustav Carus and Ludwig Richter. All of them preference to a route which in later years became famous as Malerweg (Painters'Path). Nowadays it also extends on the left side of the Elbe river.
