The Bohemian Switzerland national park is located in the north of the Czech Republic, adjacent to Germany’s Saxon Switzerland National Park. Famous for its sandstone formations and its breathtaking views, visitors to the park can hike, bike, canoe and even get lost inside rock labyrinths.

There’s no bad time to visit the park, as each season has its own magic to offer. From beautiful autumn colours to a magical winter wonderland, there is always something special to see.

The gorges on the Kamenice River are rocky river stretches that flow through Bohemian Switzerland and eventually open up into the Elbe Canyon. The thin but deep gorges are favorites among boaters, who can take a dinghy for a short ride on the calm waters.
