THE BEST OF BOHEMIAN 

& SAXON SWITZERLAND 

from DRESDEN

A VIEW OF A LIFETIME

The Bastei Bridge

Try our BEST-SELLING summer tour and witness the most beautiful highlights of both national parks in 1 day!

Our 'best of' tour offers an unprecendented opportunity to visit the 3 most popular highlights of Bohemian Saxon Switzerland in 1 day: the Bastei Bridge, the Pravcicka Gate and the Kamenice Gorges.

The tour begins by picking you up at your Dresden hotel, Airbnb or elsewhere in Dresden. Our comfortable vehicle will then transport you 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. 

Our first destination is the magnificent Bastei Bridge (Saxon Switzerland, Germany). The breathtaking view of the Elbe River Canyon, high above which the Bridge perches, will be engrained into your memory forever. Watching the sunrise above the unique sandstone pinnacles is a priceless experience. This easy scenic walk is finished by an excursion of the medievil castle ruins of Felsenburg Neurathen (13th cen.), located at the other end of the Bastei Bridge.

The Pravcicka Gate

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

Within seeing  distance from the Pravcicka Gate is our 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). Our final trip begins at the restaurant's doorstep. A descending hike unravels the beauty of the Kamenice River Gorge. Its moderate rainforest climate is very 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 last element of this impression-rich day tour. You will have seen the BEST OF the Bohemian & Saxon Switzerlnad National Parks!!!
