26757 Bastei           Discovered 2001 May 20 at Volkssternwarte Drebach.
The Bastei is a rock in the middle of the Elbsandsteingebirge, a mountaineous area of eastern Germany known as "Saxon Switzerland". The Bastei rises 193 meters above the winding Elbe river and provides a splendid panoramic view of the surrounding landsape. It has been a well-known natural monument for 200 years.
