Edmund's and Wild Gorge

Two wild canyons of the Kamenice river, which can be navigated by barge.

Due to the forest fires in July 2022, the two gorges are currently closed!

The Kamenice river forms two deep gorges, the Wild Gorge and the Edmund Gorge, between Vysoká Lípa and Hřensko. Both can be navigated by barge in both directions, with the Edmund Gorge being considered more impressive. During the trip the boatmen tell whimsical stories and interpret the rock formations.

The trip in the approx. 450 m long Wild Gorge takes about 15 min, the trip in the twice as long Edmundsklamm 20 min. If you want to drive through both gorges, you have to walk about 1,5 km in between.

An important feature of the gorges is the vegetation: since cold air collects in the deep gorges, vegetation that is otherwise found in the colder climate of mountain regions thrives here, at only 200 m above sea level.

The gorges were made accessible in the 19th century by Count Edmund Clary-Aldringen, who has done a great deal to develop tourism in the region.

Arrival

The access to the upper landing stage in the Wild Gorge is connected with at least 2 km of footpath. You can get there by bus to the bus stop "Jetřichovice, Vysoká Lípa, Divoká soutěska" directions_railway directions_bus. From the nearest parking lot in Mezní Louka it is about 3 km way.

Due to the forest fires in July 2022, the two gorges are currently closed!

The access from above or east to the upper landing stage in the Wild Gorge is closed until the end of March 2023. You can therefore only walk or take a boat from below.

If you want to drive only through a gorge, you can access the gorge from Mezná. From the not too big parking lot in Mezná or the bus stop "Hřensko, Mezná" directions_railway directions_bus it is about 1 km down into the gorge and from there about 600 m to the lower landing stage of the Wilde gorge or 900 m to the upper landing stage of the Edmund gorge. From the large parking lot in Mezní Louka or the bus stop "Hřensko, Mezní Louka, před hotelem" directions_railway directions_bus it is about 1.3 km more.

You can also start the trip at the lower landing stage of the Edmundsklamm. From the nearest parking lot in Hřensko or the bus stop "Hřensko, k soutěskám" directions_railway directions_bus it is about 2 km on foot to get there.

Tip: Most bus connections to the mentioned bus stops start at Děčín. It can be a better idea to take the ferry from Schöna to Hřensko and get on the bus there. But this is not offered by the electronic connection information.
