    Malerweg Trail hammocking seems possible (if not actually legal)

    Hi all. Im currently hiking the Malerweg in southeast Germany. Its sublime loving it. But I believed the posts online (mostly in German/Czech) that said camping is super illegal/the park rangers will find you etc. And with that in mind, I booked hostels. Dammit! Now only are there a gazillion perfect trees here, theres are also a LOT of very lightly used side trails, and side-side trails, any of which would lead to a perfect stealth hang. I wish Id brought my hammocking gear; I will the next time!

    The upshot: the malerweg is more than worth doing, and if youre at all stealthy, it would be very do-able with a hammock. Easiest would be south of the river and east of the Bad Schandau area, towards Schmilka/the Schrammstein area, but it could be done throughout if you were wise about it. Im writing this because I wish Id known that. Happy trails, yall 😁

    Yes, its illegal in the core zone (Kernzone) of the natural park, the park rangers know their territory very well and its an expensive pleasure if you get caught.
    But: If they cant find you, they cant fine you!
