Pražská, Krásná Lípa, Jetřichovice, Bohemian Switzerland National Park, 405 02

The Basics

The most popular attraction in Bohemian Switzerland National Park is Pravcicka Brana (Pravcicka Gate), Europe’s largest sandstone arch, standing 52 feet (16 meters) high. Don’t miss the lookout points near Jetrichovice, including Mary’s Rock—which is more than 600 steps to the top. The main village in the park is the picturesque Hrensko, which is worth a visit in its own right. Located north of Prague along the German border, you can visit the park on a tour from either Prague or Dresden, perhaps including a stop at the Saxon Switzerland National Park in Germany as well.

Beautiful, Peaceful, Clean and all within a day trip from Prague
So nice to experience some of the natural beauty in the Czech Republic and Germany. My guide was punctual and was so interesting. In addition to seeing the beautiful landscapes and hike, I also learned a lot about Czech culture and had a great lunch - in a local spot that sources their food locally and always cooks from fresh ingredients. I highly recommend this tour as it shows you more of what the Czech Republic has to offer beyond Prague.

Bohemian Switzerland national park Private day trip with Lunch and Boat ride
My partner and I booked a personal couple trip to Bohemian Saxon Switzerland national park from Prague. Our tour guide was Michal, we started our day slightly early in the morning at 6.30 am which we think was the best decision. Michal arrived to pick us up from our hotel, his SUV was very clean and comfortable. He was very friendly and knowledgeable about the area. We very much enjoyed the trip talking about history, culture and exploring the natural beauty.

Martin was really great. He picked me up right from my AirBNB so I did not have to find a meeting point or anything for the tour. Very friendly and easy to talk to. He gave all of us an overview of what was included and what to expect. The views were absolutely beautiful even though it was a little foggy that day (but it is expected for January). It was the best thing I could have done to end my vacation. I would recommend this trip to anyone who loves hiking.

We were comfortably transported from our hotel in Prague to hike locations on both the Czech and German sides of the border. The Tiske Walls and the Bastei Bridge really have to be experienced up-close to be appreciated. The chilly weather allowed us to experience the park without the crowds, and our knowledgeable guide, Marek, pampered us with a thermos of warm mulled wine, and a sumptuous lunch in Hrensko.

Things to Know Before You Go

  • Color-coded hiking trails depart from Hrensko and Jetrichovice.

  • Pravcicka Brana is about an hour’s walk from Hrensko along Gabriel’s Trail.

  • The park features an “upside-down” climate, which means that alpine and subalpine species are found thriving in river canyons and gorges, while higher slopes are home to species that are typically found in warmer climates.

  • Pravcicka Brana and the park’s other main attractions are not accessible to wheelchair users.

When to Get There

Bohemian Switzerland National Park is open year-round, though crowds are sparser in the winter months, when the weather can be less predictable. Outdoor activities are especially popular in the spring, summer and fall, as are boat rides on the Kamenice River, which are not possible in the winter.

Rock Formations in Bohemian Switzerland National Park

In addition to the Pravcicka Brana, you’ll find fascinating sandstone rock formations throughout Bohemian Switzerland National Park—all of which are part of a larger geological formation known as the Elbe Sandstones. This makes the park especially popular with rock climbers. In fact the Fortress route, which was first climbed in 1888, was the first recreational rock climb in what is now the Czech Republic.
