It is a breath taking view. The Bastei is a rock formation towering 194 metres above the Elbe River in the Elbe Sandstone Mountains of Germany. Word of advice, we went there during the winter and the way down is by concrete steps. These steps...More

Just WOW! The beauty and its mountainous view remained me the beauty of Switzerland. Interestingly, this place is also called "Saechsische Schweiz", in English "Saxon Switzerland". A lovely place that is highly recommended for you all.

What a wonderful trip. The park is beautiful and very much worth the drive to see it. Our hike was at an easy pace. We had a wonderful lunch at the park. I would recommend this trip to anyone visiting Prague.
