Get views of a towering rock formation, or enjoy hiking and food at . Walk across the bridge to the formation, or snap some photos of the bridge itself from a lookout point. Take one of the many well-marked, hiking paths, or rent a paddleboat at the bottom of the trails so you can get closer to the lakes, waterfalls, and looming rocks. The panorama restaurant and food kiosks at the top are a great place to grab a meal with a view.

  • Bestei is a very charming place. The view from the rocks, on which the castle stood in the Middle Ages, is breathtaking. Definitely worth it.

  • Interesting place, which take group tours or can be reached by yourself if you have a car!) The place is famous for the fact that as early as the 18th century here extracted 'sandstone' - the material needed for example, for the production of ceramics, and this material was used for the construction of the fortress Koenigstein located on the other side of the Elbe. It is also interesting that this is where the bridge over the Elbe was built and, strictly speaking, nearby. No bridges!) The natural attraction itself in the form of 'stone fingers'...

  • It's the place everyone comes to see. While I would recommend visitors to also see other parts of the park, this place is great and fascinating. Can believe this place was built on the precarious rocks in the 13th century! Do highly recommend paying for the "further entry".
  • Really impressive. The view is incredible, but even when it is foggy - the bridge and the rocks in the fog are enchanted. Lots of other amazing rocks sites on the Czech side of the border
