The start of the twelve-kilometer round trip is the historic market square in Dohna. From here, the route climbs to Gut Gamig, a former knight's estate, now a rehabilitation and meeting center with its own farm store. The tour continues via Röhrsdorf through apple orchards to the Lugturm, whose beer garden invites you to take a break at the weekend. From here, in good weather, the view extends to the table mountains of Saxon Switzerland and the Elbe Valley to Dresden. The way back to Dohna is again through an apple orchard.

Author’s recommendation

The hike is especially beautiful during the apple blossom. Then the trees of the apple orchards show themselves in their greatest splendor.

Turn-by-turn directions

From Dohna market and we walk in the direction of the lower town and cross the Müglitz over the new pedestrian bridge. From here we go uphill to Gut Gamig, a former knight's estate, today used as a rehabilitation and meeting place with its own farm store. After looking around here, we continue walking through the small Gründel in the direction of Röhrsdorf. Arrived at the playground, a break is offered. The tour continues through the plantation to Wölkau with a stop in the beer garden at the Lugturm (Attention: this is only open on weekends!) After the refreshment we walk through the apple plantation over the Meuscha further in the direction of Dohna. After crossing the highway, we pass the sports field and head back towards the market. During this hike we always have the church of Gamig as well as Dohna in view. In clear weather, the view extends into Saxon Switzerland with its table mountains and down into the Elbe Valley towards Dresden.
