Ascend the Gate for stunning views! Enjoy serene nature, free from crowds. This popular hike also features the iconic Bastei Bridge, for a true adventure in the snowy season.

Available from November to March on Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays due to the special winter hours at Pravcicka Gate.

Wondering how to top off your visit to Prague's renowned Christmas markets? Consider this: a full-day excursion to the national parks of Bohemian and Saxon Switzerland. Yes, you heard it right—two parks, one day, packed with winter wonders. Don't worry about freezing temperatures or specialized gear; we've got you covered. Our guided tour will lead you through picturesque trails, where the rock formations and lush forests offer up a tranquil winter wonderland. While snow is weather-dependent, you can bet that the Pravcicka Gate—the largest sandstone arch in Europe—will be ready and waiting for your Instagram feed.

As with all our tours, your comfort and enjoyment are our top priorities. That's why we've included an á la carte lunch at a cozy local restaurant. Choose anything you like from the menu. Maybe go for a traditional Czech dish or just stick to comfort food, the choice is yours. After you've warmed up with some hot coffee or tea, we'll set out for the day's second highlight—Germany's famous Bastei Bridge.

Pravcicka Gate

The Bastei Bridge is not just any bridge; it's the most visited natural attraction in Germany. While it usually draws a crowd, winter gives you the unique opportunity to experience it without the usual hustle and bustle. Picture this: You, standing on Europe's first-ever tourist bridge, taking in the stunning vistas of sandstone mountains as they seem to rise from the earth. If the weather cooperates, you could even score some sublime winter sunset shots.

So, if you're in Prague and snow seems to be eluding you, there's a good chance you'll find what you're looking for in the snow-tipped mountains of Bohemian and Saxon Switzerland. The tour offers the perfect balance of adventure and relaxation, ideal for anyone looking to get the most out of their winter stay in Prague.

Ready for a winter escape you won't soon forget? We're ready to welcome your booking.
