Decin Things to Do: 24 reviews and 105 photos
This is the name of a sandstone rock that towers up on the left bank over the Elbe/Labe river. As far as I know (from the German name "Schäferwand") it means "shepherd's wall". The views from there are absolutely gorgeous - see the pictures! The elevation difference to the river level is about 150 m - nothing for people with fear of heights (although you can enjoy the view from a safe terrace set back a few meters).
The the left (north) you see the begin of the river canyon in the sandstone massif of the Bohemian-Saxon National Park, vis-a-vis are the castle of Decin and the old town, to the right (south) you see the begin of other mid-range mountains, the Ceske stredohori.
Access is either walking or driving up a narrow street from Podmokly, take a signposted turn right at Teplicka street or walk (hike!) up a steep path that starts right at the Tyrs bridge.
There is a restaurant on top, never had anything there, sorry. It is also the starting point of several walking/hiking paths that mostly lead through woods. Nearby is the zoo, see separate tip.
