The must do hike in the most picturesque Czech and German national park
90 millions years ago the nature was already at work for giving us the chance of a wonderful hiking experience in the landscape of sandstone rock “towns”, towers, walls, gorges and ravines .
We start our hike in the little village of Hrensko, at the border with Germany, which we will reach by car. The first part of our journey will take us to Pravcicka Gate, the largest natural sandstone arch in Europe and the symbol of the national park. Just underneath it there is the Falcon’s Nest, a characteristic wooden chateaux made from oak bark with a little restaurant.
Our journey continues through Gabrielina’s trail, a nice and easy trail through more wonderful sandstone rocks. At the end of it a little village emerges where we can enjoy a lunch in one of the best (if not the best) restaurants in the area.
Ready to roll again? Let’s descend to Kamenice river gorges for an unforgettable walk. In no time you will be surrounded by a wall of high rocks on both sides. We will walk beneath rock ledges, through several tunnels and across narrow footbridges. Twice, the only way to continue our journey will be by jumping on a boat driven by a ferryman who steers it with a pole, contributing to a even richer experience.
