This section of the Malerweg begins in Stadt Whelen and takes you to Bastei, which provides the most famous views of Saxon Switzerland National Park. From Whelen, take the path following the River Elbe and then to the path Schwarzbergweg. You will pass by the tranquil town of Rathen, Amselsee Lake before approaching Amselfall, and into the Polenztal valley.
