Prossen was first mentioned in a document on May 15, 1412 as “Prossentin” and was once a knight’s seat. It had a favorable location, because here the “Alte Steig” (old path) led across the Elbe – the most important trade route, which connected Bautzen and Königswald through the area of Saxon Switzerland. Holidaymakers appreciate the quiet south-facing location of the village between Bad Schandau and Königstein. From the pier in Prossen you can get to the Lilienstein in about 1.25h. From there you can descend in the direction of Königstein and reach another pier of ours. The town of Prossen also holds worthwhile destinations, including the former manor house or castle Prossen.
