In order to be able to enjoy the breathtaking view of the surrounding panorama from our restaurant, there are several possibilities for the approach and the ascent to the Rauenstein.
Arrival by S-Bahn:
A hike on the Rauenstein rock is possible from the “Stadt Wehlen” S-Bahn station in around 60 minutes and from the “Kurort Rathen” S-Bahn station in around 45 minutes. The Rauenstein is signposted at both train stations.

We attach particular importance to the environment, sustainability and fair cooperation. In our rock restaurant Rauenstein we offer a wide range of organic products and a selection of food and drinks that support regional producers. Much of our packaging is produced sustainably and is biodegradable. We also campaign against dumping wages in the catering industry and pay fair salaries above the industry average and minimum wage.
We are convinced that with respect for our nature and appreciation for our fellow human beings, together we can make a valuable contribution to making the world a little better every day!
The almost completely forested Rauenstein in the middle of Saxon Switzerland was opened up for tourism as early as 1885. One year later, until 1893, the first drinks were served in the Kapphöhle on the summit plateau of the Rauenstein.
Our cozy restaurant in Saxon Switzerland is also part of this development and looks back on a long history. In 2006, as part of extensive renovation work in the Rauenstein restaurant, the goods elevator was renewed, sanitary facilities were created and all rooms were renovated. Over time, the former snack bar has developed into a real mountain restaurant as a hiking rest with space for up to 65 people, with today's rock restaurant Rauenstein and the new kitchen.
