Hiking in the Sächsische Schweiz

In addition to the official Brits16 activities, there will also be a small group going hiking privately in the Sächsische Schweiz on Sunday 11th September (see above).

Leaving from Dresden main station at 9.29am, the group will spend the day hiking, including a trip on the Kirnitzschtalbahn, and return in time for the Welcome Banquet at MPIPKS.

The hike will include some strenuous parts (eg Hänzelstiege), and is therefore not for the inexperienced. Those participating will need appropriate shoes and clothing, as well as food and water. The cost of the transport must be covered privately.

If you would like to participate, please contact Roger Smith (Scientific Coordinator) directly.
