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.

  • Went from Prague to tour Keningshtajn and Bastei Park. There are no words to express my admiration for the Spring foliage seen yet and all is well. And finally the trip drank German beer "Schofferhofer" and "Radeberger" for 5 Euros

  • Great area and worth a visit at any time of the year! There is much to discover, and a day trip of rathen from the Lilienstein and Königstein are within easy reach. We love it here :)

  • Visit the bastion to winter time is complicated by some smooth - not diffused - ways. The locations and kiosks are closed at this time. Who wants to eat something, can go in the on-site hotel restaurant. The visit to the winter time has the advantage of preventing the number of visitors in borders. A stay can be undisturbed for example on the Bastei bridge.

  • Good restaurant here. Looks posh, but they're extremely friendly and welcoming. Difficult to access with a wheelchair or pushchair, bit there is a lift of you call them down help. We recommend the Apple Strudel! Amazing views while you done 👍
  • It's a fantastic area to walk and hike through, and worth the effort. There are vehicle and horse carriage paths available but you won't get the same experience. Bring a hiking stick, though, if you're not a regular hiker. The views at the top are spectacular!
  • A very beautiful landscape and castle.
  • Amazing place with amazing view. Short walk to the view location. Nice places to have a snack or a meal nearby.
  • Great place for hiking and beautiful sights. There are many tracks for hiking that include Basteibrücke (Bastei bridge) and a bunch of tracks through the wild. The approach via local transport is quite easy too. It is advised for foreigners to be a little bit careful of the right wing locals.
