Arrival with bus and train
The Elbe Sandstone Forststeig can be reached easily by public transport. The system is simple; A standardized fare (VVO-Tarif) applies for all cummuter trains, the S-bahn, the bus and almost every ferry within Saxony. Timetables that are coordinated with one another and short distances make transfers between methods of transportation easier.
To the left of the Elbe, the OVPS-Wanderbusse (busses) Bielatal-Linie 242, Steine-Linie 244 and Tisá-Linie 217 connect the hiking region around the Forststeig with the cities of Pirna, Königstein and Bad Schandau. These bus lines, whose timetables are coordinated with the S1 S-bahn, run for you every day during the season.
You can buy trekking tickets at the OVPS service desks at the bus station in Pirna and at the Nationalparkbahnof train station in Bad Schandau.
