As the second largest Saxonian rock landscape (after the Elbe Sandstone Mountains), the Zittau Mountains became known above all with names such as Mount Oybin, the Kelchstein, the Nonnenfelsen and the Jonsdorf millstone quarries. In contrast to Saxon Switzerland, the high volcanic mountains such as Lausche, Hochwald and Jonsberg stand out and determine the landscape with bizarre sandstone rocks, narrow rocky lanes and wide meadows and forests.
Also worth seeing are the mountain villages with their spa parks and the Umgebinde houses, which decorate richly decorated sandstone doorways here.
Further information about the Zittau Mountains can be found here.
