This ancient stone bridge is surrounded by stunning views of the region. Take your time to explore the bridge area, there's a rock castle ruin, and other treks that offer beautiful views to other sides of the region.

The bridge gives one a panoramic view of the rock formations & sceneries on both sides of Bastei. Best place to take pictures & enjoy the fresh cool breeze. And admire this amazing nature's wonder slowly.

Unexpected music playing in the background of the scenic bridge. There was a concert hall at the base of the rock formations and it echoed through the entire area. It was beautiful.

Fantastic sandy Rock formation from the Cretaceous Period when the water left the area, and only the rivers and the seabed where left and then the erosion has created the amazing rock formation. A nice panorama restaurant on the top, a path that leads over...More

This place is just full of people in the season! You have to wait several minutes to get to the lookout point, many people cutting the line. But definitely would recommend going there by sunset or sunrise - I’ve done both and this place can...More

The walk from the parkinglot took about 10 min, but well at the site the distances are short. However, We didn’t do the real climb from the village, since We had kids with us.
