Saunstejn castle can offer pretty spectacular views, especially sunsets are amazing from there. It's easy to reach from a parking lot, 20 mins walking maximum. Compared to other touristy sites in Bohemian Switzerland this one stays quite off beaten trail and late in the day...More

Maybe it can be dangerous for childen from 4-5 years old. There are many steep rope ladders. You can do a part of the tour and after you can return. But the environment is very beautiful. It is a magic place, you can tell... More
