About the Bohemian-Sachsen Switzerland National Park:
The park bears its name thanks to two Swiss artists, Adrian Zingg, and Anton Graff, who were appointed by the Dresden Academy of Art in 1766. The two artists were so inspired by this place that they started to call the place Saxon Switzerland, Sächsische Schweiz in German. The park is well known among climbers thanks to its approximately 1000 climbing peaks (pinnacles), and hikers alike. Now, it’s a prime location to ride gravel bikes as well.
The region is easily accessible by both train and car, and by extension of course by bike.
