After we reached the other end, Chesa also decided to grab ice cream. I grabbed my first bockwurst which was a bad idea. Everyone was looking at us in disapproval as we ate during our steep hike up. We passed by several natural windows that gave us majestic views of our point of origin.
Half of the time not knowing what we're doing, we just decided to go through the gates that led us to this area which allowed us to go from one rock to another through narrow steel bridges. There is a small entrance fee. I'm glad Chesa and I decided to go through it on a whim because you could not really see what was behind the gates. I'm not really afraid of heights in general but it takes a little time to get used to seeing directly through around a thousand feet below you. It was definitely worth it.
Built in 1851, the Bastei Bridge is made out of sandstone and has been the point of interest for tourists like us over the past 200 years. It was simply stunning and quite surreal.
After reaching the farthest end, Chesa and I just sat around and just admired the view of the valley while sipping coffee. We were beat and it was time to head back to the city center of Dresden.
