Cemetery Labská Stráň

Nicely located cemetery with recovered old graves

The cemetery is located a bit outside Labská Stráň on the edge of the forest. If you travel here because of the Belvedér lookout, this cemetery is worth a small detour.

Worth mentioning is that active, local people from the "Spolek pro Labskou Stráň" association began in 2019 to excavate the remains of old, mostly German tombstones and make them accessible to the public again. After the expulsion of the German population after the end of WWII, the tombs were partly destroyed and fell into oblivion. Their presentation contributes to a better understanding of local history. The municipality has taken some special tombstones under its care. This work will continue in the next few years and thus add more pieces to the puzzle of regional history.

If you want to support these activities financially, you are welcome to donate to the association's account. The IBAN is CZ33 2010 0000 0027 0204 5851 (BIC: FIOBCZPP). Please indicate what the donation shall be used for.

Arrival

The quickest way to get out of the Elbe Valley is to take a few stairs directly from the Elbleitenweg or from the ferry in Dolní Žleb to Labská Stráň. A little further, but highly recommended, is the path through the Suché Kamenice gorge (Drought Kamnitz). Ambitious hikers can also reach the view on the red marked hiking trail from Děčín to Hřensko (approx. 15 km). You can experience the 4 km long, dead straight carriage path to Bynovec Castle.

A bus from Děčín directions_railway directions_bus goes to Labská Stráň and takes about 1/2 hour from the local train station.

There is also a car park right next to the Belvedér view.
