What to expect

Visit three of the most popular highlights of Bohemian Saxon Switzerland in one day: the Bastei Bridge, the Pravcicka Gate and the Kamenice Gorges.

The tour begins by picking you up at your hotel in Dresden, you will then drive to the German part of the National Park. The snacks and beverages along the way in combination with an informative description of the passing landmarks will make the journey over in no time.

The first destination is the magnificent Bastei Bridge at Saxon Switzerland, Germany. The breathtaking view of the Elbe River Canyon will be engraved into your memory forever. This easy scenic walk is finished by an excursion of the medieval castle ruins of Felsenburg Neurathen, located at the other end of the Bastei Bridge.

The following journey takes you over the border to the Bohemian Czech part of the National Park. The 2km hike navigates you to the Pravcicka Gate. Approaching it from below, you will perceive the majesty with which it stands at the top of the surrounding landscape. It is the symbol of the Bohemian Switzerland National Park and you will know why, once you see it.

Sight distance from the Pravcicka Gate is a traditional Czech restaurant. A rich 'a la carte' lunch will be an appreciated reward. Both traditional Czech and international dishes are served (vegetarian options available). Your final trip begins at the restaurant's doorstep. A descending hike unravels the beauty of the Kamenice River Gorge. Its moderate rainforest climate is so refreshing. The river along which you stroll is wild at first, but as you approach the boat cruise section, it calms down completely. The mystical dinghy boat cruise is the closing element of this impression-rich day tour.
