Left the little one, right the big bear stone.

The Bärensteine between the Struppener districts of Naundorf in the west, Weißig in the east and Thürmsdorf in the south are a mountain range in Saxon Switzerland in the Free State of Saxony consisting of the Big and Small Bärenstein .

The Kleine Bärenstein has a height of 338 meters, the more expansive Große Bärenstein is the lower of the two mountains at 327 meters. On the Kleiner Bärenstein there was once a viewing restaurant that belonged to the Kleinstruppen manor and that was looted and demolished in the years after the Second World War .

The name Bärenstein goes back to the aristocratic Bernstein family, who owned the Thürmsdorf estates and small troops as early as 1548. Of the interesting and large caves of the two table mountains, only the Diebskeller, also called Götzinger cave, on the Kleiner Bärenstein is regularly visited.
