The fascinating landscape of Saxon Switzerland lies to the south of Dresden extending along the Elbe into the Czech Republic. Its unique sandstone outcrops, several rising several hundred metres, amid woods and pastures provide a wealth of exhilarating and beautiful walks.
Hobbit Hikes is headed by Claudia Holbe, a 31 year-old graduate engineer of nature conservation and landscape planning, and Daphna Zieschang, a 33 year-old graduate biologist. Both are Certified Guides of the Saxon Switzerland National Park.
Hobbit Hikes offers a wide range of walks and excursions covering the special local flora and fauna, the old villages along the banks of the Elbe, day tours to Dresden and Prague and much more…..

Why are we called „Hobbit“ Hikes? – because the Hobbit motto – „the slow one sees more“ aptly captures our approach to our tours of the region. We set great store by a relaxed and friendly approach to exploring the region.
