Accommodation Hřensko

The small village is a kind of imaginary gateway to the National Park Bohemian Switzerland. The village is an important part of tourism. It lies on the Kamenice river. It can also be described as the lowest village in the Czech Republic. Its altitude is only 110 m above sea level. In the past, Hřensko was closely connected with shipping and transshipment of goods. Grain, wood, salt, planks and other building materials were stored here.

The location of Hřensko directly attracts visitors to explore the surrounding places such as the Pravčická Gate, Gabrielina Trail or the adventurous Kamenice Adventure.

Why Hřensko?

Hřensko is a great tourist destination. Here you can find rare mountain plants that thrive here thanks to the climate and the narrow profile of the village. You can get to all sorts of interesting places from here. Hřensko has a long history and its first mention dates back to 1475. The village got its name from the lower Hornskratschen, where the manor house stood on an elevated wall until 1938.

Hřensko and its surroundings are visited by many nature lovers, mountaineers climbing easier and harder challenges and tourists from all over. There are also many paddlers who enjoy the easy access to the Elbe River. By car, bicycle or on foot, you have the opportunity to go all over Bohemian Switzerland and enjoy the local scenery.

Pravčická brána

The symbol of Bohemian Switzerland is undoubtedly the largest rock bridge in Europe, the Pravčická Gate. It is made of sandstone and it is a real giant. It is 26.5 m long and 16 m high. The sandstone dates back to the Mesozoic era, which has a lower strength, and because it has been battered by the weather for centuries, there is a risk of partial erosion. Therefore, there is a strict ban on access to the upper part of the gate. It is a protected natural formation.

The gate serves as an entrance to this area, where there is also the well-preserved Falcon’s Nest Chateau from 1881 and a tourist centre. There are also viewpoints in the area from which you can observe the adjacent natural formations. It is also a starting point for various marked hiking trails. The gate can be easily reached from the adjacent Hřensko along the red trail.

Pravčická Gate was affected by a large fire, but today it is accessible again.

Favourite route

One of the most popular hiking trails is undoubtedly the Gabrielina Trail. It connects the Pravčická Gate with Mezní Louka. The whole route will take you about 3 hours of your time. It is red marked and can be done by all ages, adults and children. On the trail, which dates back to the 19th century, you will pass many natural beauties. It follows the contours and you will see for example the May Tower, the Chinese Wall and the Pravčická Needles. From this route you will also see the beautiful Rose Mountains.

The Gabrielina Trail was also affected by a devastating fire. It is currently being restored.

Soutěsky Kamenice

It is logically located on the gorge of the Kamenice river. Previously it was impossible to pass here, the road was too dangerous. But experienced hikers crossed it at the end of the 19th century and modified it so that it could be descended. It is truly unique and fascinating. The trail runs along the Kamenice River and you will have to climb through several tunnels, pass under rock overhangs and be ferried by boat across the Edmund and Silent Gorges.

During the boat ride you will learn more about the history of the gorge and its inhabitants. This trail is doable from spring through fall. After that, you can just walk to the boat and head back on the same route. However, you can follow the path along the shore, which will lead you to Dolský Mill.

Dolský mlýn

In the canyon of the Kamenice River lies the ruins of the Dolský Mill. Only the torso of the outer walls is still standing, but the mill is still firmly connected to the site. It has a dark past, or so says the legend associated with this place. Hundreds of years ago, when the mill wheel was still turning and the water was still flowing, a miller and a maid lived here.

One day they robbed and killed a traveller. Only the next day did they discover that it was their own son, who had once gone out into the world for experience and was now returning home. The grief was too great, so the miller hanged himself and the woman jumped into the embankment and drowned. Since those days the ghost of the son can be seen wandering around.

This legend gives the place a mysterious air, which is why it is so sought after. The mill used to grind grain, but after the river closed, the inhabitants had to switch to brewing beer. Later, with the boom in tourism, the building became an inn. However, after the Second World War the mill was abandoned and gradually fell into disrepair. You can get here either from Jetřichovice or from Vysoké Lípa. The interesting surroundings and natural scenery have enchanted many directors. Several Czech fairy tales were filmed here, such as The Proud Princess, Hell with the Princess, The Devil’s Bride, The True Knight and The Lost Prince.
