The mountain range with the most visitors is the Elbe Sandstone Mountains, mostly called Saxon Switzerland and Bohemian Switzerland. The border to the Eastern Ore Mountains is usually located near Petrovice. As the name already indicates, the Elbe Sandstone Mountains are characterized by sandstone, which has often taken on bizarre forms due to erosion. This not only attracts many tourists, but also makes the area an El Dorado for rock climbing. The highest elevation is the Großer Winterberg (556m), but classical mountains hardly play a role here compared to the impressive rock faces and peaks. The national parks Saxon and Bohemian Switzerland protect large parts of this unique natural area.
