let’s hike in Germany!
The Bastei Bridge is rightly the top landmark of Saxon Switzerland and something you should see with your own eyes! And because, this is a Discovering Prague & CZ trip, you will also see some of the less visited attractions of this unique natural area!
• The breath-taking scenery of Bastei Bridge
• The Neurathen Rock Castle
• A few less know points of interest as a surprise!
MEETING TIME & LOCATION
We will meet at 8:00 am on Saturday 18th of May 2019, in front of the old building of Prague Main Train Station (Fantova budova).
We will travel by a privately chartered small bus. The journey to the trailhead takes about 2 hours and 15 minutes.
We will have cca 30 min picnic break at Bastei. There are kiosks selling snacks and drinks (sausages, ice cream, beer, etc.) or bring your own picnic lunch. After we finished the hike (around 15:30), you will be able to have a meal in a nice local restaurant (not included in the price, cca 12 Euro, optional). Bring water and a sandwich/snack to eat during the day!
Expected arrival back to Prague is around 8:00 pm but a delay is possible. Don’t plan anything important after the trip!
DIFFICULTY: Medium (about 10 km of walking including steep stairs and uneven surfaces)
You will be required to walk up 700 meters long stairs overcoming 130 meters of vertical gain! This is roughly twice as much as the stairs from Karlín to Vítkov.
