Prague Small-Group Day Trip: Elbe Sandstones Natural Reservation Including Elbe Canyon and Bastei Sandstone Bridge
Visit the Elbe Sandstone Natural Reserve and see the Bastei rocks of Germany’s Saxon Switzerland on this small-group tour from Prague, without needing to organize transport. See the Tisa Rocks in the reserve and admire the Bastei rocks and stone bridge above the River Elbe—all with a guide to ensure you enjoy the best views. Lunch, minivan transport, and a small-group atmosphere are part and parcel of the trip.
What to Expect
Depart your Prague hotel for the approximate 2-hour drive to the Elbe Sandstones Natural Reserve by air-conditioned minivan. Wi-Fi is provided on board.

Stop first at the Tisa Rocks to admire the high rock pillars—some weathered into unusual shapes—and tour the passageways, learning how Tisa featured in 2005’s The Chronicles of Narnia movie. If you wish, visit the rock tops for panoramic views over the surrounding countryside.

Next, enjoy a Czech lunch at a quality restaurant, savoring traditional fare alongside an optional beer from a local microbrewery.

From here, continue to the German side of the Elbe Sandstones and Bastei rocks: towering sandstone pinnacles that soar above the Elbe river , linked by a narrow stone bridge and fortress.

 Follow the trails to viewpoints overlooking the mountain-ringed Elbe canyon and Konigstein Fortress. In good weather, enjoy stunning sunset views. 

Your trip then concludes at your Prague hotel.
