  • Entrance 50 kn per person, 10 kN. for the parking. If you pretty early there is plenty of parking, you come later in the day it may be that you must pretty far (up to 2 km to the entrance). Very nice park with forests and rocks. Also ideal for mountain climbers or to learn it. We were hiking. Nice deep gorges. We left at entrance 1 and followed a piece of mountain river. To Anika Kuk hiked, on 712m height. Scenic views but best steep. Walking shoes advisable. Fortunately a lot of shade in the morning along this side.

  • Great program for those who enjoy hiking, walking and nature. Recently a whole day to see the entire Park and more than 50 waterfalls. In the summer, don't forget your hat and sunscreen. It's worth it!

  • The park itself is beautiful, but a total lack of clear directions. Focuses mainly on rock climbing. Bewandelbaar paths are very bad, definitely not suitable for people with reduced mobility, children. It can look fresh; Little sun in the gorges.
