The view on Schrammsteine was lovely, so was the hike through a forest and mossy green rock stacks, giving you a little taste of what’s to come as you climb higher and higher. in general you’ll need about 45 minutes each way, and be sure...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.
