巴斯泰（Bastei）石林，砂岩削壁，怪石林立，以棧道、石橋相連。巴斯泰 (Bastei) 的岩石 (德文：felsen）懸崖絕頂，極目遠眺，一側黃綠相間的鄉村風光，一側是起伏砂岩和勇敢攀登者，氣象萬千，觀景絕佳。
The Bastei is a spectacular rock formation towering 194 metres above the Elbe River in the Elbe Sandstone Mountains of Germany. Reaching a height of 305 metres above sea level, the jagged rocks of the Bastei were formed by water erosion over one million years ago. They are situated near Rathen, not far from Pirna southeast of the city of Dresden and are the major landmark of the Saxon Switzerland National Park. They are also part of a climbing and hiking area that runs over border into the Czech Republic and Bohemian Switzerland.
The Bastei has been a tourist attraction for over 200 years. In 1824 a wooden bridge was constructed to link several rocks for the visitors. This bridge was replaced in 1851 by the present Bastei Bridge made of sandstone. The rock formations and vistas have inspired several well-known artists, among them Caspar David Friedrich (i.e. "Felsenschlucht" )
The spa town of Rathen is the main base for visiting the Bastei; the town can be reached from Dresden by paddle steamer on the river Elbe.
Another famous landmark in the local area is the fortress of Königstein.
