Decin Things to Do: 23 reviews and 100 photos
Since the rock on top of which the castle sits reaches almost to the Elbe/Labe river and made it quite inconvenient to get from the park on the northern side of the castle to the southern side with the pond etc. the owners wanted a tunnel through the rock. The work was done 1808 - 10.
After construction of the tunnel was one problem left: crossing the small canal in which the water flows from the pond into the river. A small wooden bridge was replaced by an iron bridge in 1830/31. This is one of the oldest and only one preserved in its original location in the Czech Republic.
Directions: Right below the tower of the castle.
