Daytrip Festung Königstein+Bastei Bridge, public transp or ?

Hi, we are a group of 2 people. I'd like to know how, if possible, a day trip from dresden to Festung Königstein+Bastei Bridge could be done using public transport or tour company. What is the approximate cost? If possible, we'd like to see the Bastei bridge without hiking too much, as one of us is quite weak.

thank you.

Buy a Familientageskarte (family day ticket) for the entire VVO area. EUR 16,00 (for both of you).

vvo-online.de/en/…index.aspx

.

VVO timetable

vvo-online.de/en/…

From

Place of departure: Dresden

Stop name: Hauptbahnhof

(you can give there of course any stop in Dresden as start point)

To

Place of arrival: Lohmen (Sachs)

Stop name: Bastei

To

Place of arrival: Königstein (Sächs.Schw.),

Stop name: Am Königstein

.

The timetable is quite picky if it comes to the spelling.

.

Between Bastei and Königstein fortress there are also private buses.

Albeit not much faster as this goes not without detour to cross the river Elbe. This bus is EUR 9 per person if I understood their fare system correctly.

.

Königstein fortress admission fee is EUR 8,00 for an adult. This incl. the lift up to the fortress.
