Blick vom Ferdinandstein über die Basteibrücke auf den Lilienstein mit Nebelschwaden über der Elbe in der Sächsischen Schweiz. Links im Hintergrund zum oberen Zugang der Felsenburg Neurathen](http://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Felsenburg_Neurathen) lugt der Pfaffenstein, bekannt auch für seine Felsnadel Barbarine, hervor. Rechts hinter der sogenannten Großen Steinschleuder befindet sich der Königstein mit seiner Festung. Pfaffenstein, Lilienstein und Königsstein gehören wohl zu den bekanntesten Tafelbergen der Sächsischen Schweiz.

View from the Ferdinandstein to the Lilienstein over the "Basteibrücke" and dusty river Elbe in the Saxon Switzerland. In the background of the upper entrance of the Felsenburg Neurathen (rock formation on the left hand side, also part of an ancient fortress of robber knights) you find a part of the Pfaffenstein, where is situated the largest rock needle of this area called Barbarine. On the right hand side behind the so called Big Sling or Big Catapult you find the last part of the rock Königstein with its fortress. "Lilienstein", "Pfaffenstein" and "Königstein" are famous table mountains of the "Saxon Switzerland".
