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.

Nice walks through the mountains wich makes the view even more worth it. We visited 2 locations wich might be the most beautiful nature i have seen to this day in Europe. Our guide was very nice and was always up for taking a picture or a conversation. Couldn't have wished for more.

Great trip! No one else had booked on the tour but the company upheld the reservation for me. I ended up getting a private tour at the same price! Plenty of snacks and stops on the way&back. The guide, Marek, was incredibly knowledgeable, friendly and easy-going - likely the best guide I’ve ever had on a Viator trip. Beautiful sights and very relaxing for the type of trip I selected! Highly recommend!

A once in a lifetime experience! Martin was an INCREDIBLE guide and we learned more about Czechia from him than any other person we encountered on our trip. He really made this excursion unforgettable. We did the more strenuous option to see as much of the Bohemian Switzerland National Park as possible. A great hike where the majority of the uphill hiking was within the first 2 hours and then the rest was a gradual downhill nature walk. No serious hiking boots required, just walking/running shoes with good traction. The views were stunning in summer, and we could image even more so in the autumn! We would recommend this to anyone wanting some fresh air and good exercise while visiting 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.

Things to Know Before You Go

  • 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.

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.
