Viewpoint Pastýřská stěna in Děčín

View from sandstone massive at river Elbe in Děčín

The Schäferwand had already become a popular excursion destination in the 19th century due to its striking view. It was therefore decided to build a wooden shelter hut, which was replaced in the form of a romantic castle in massive construction in 1905 and which still stands on the shepherd's wall today. The terrace of the restaurant offers a picturesque view of the Elbe Valley and the Děčín Castle opposite.

On the Schäferwand there is a via ferrata that offers a daring but direct route to the view.

The Schäferwand restaurant is located directly at the view. It is currently a little uncertain whether there will be a gastronomic offer there. The opening times are very limited and current information is not available on the Internet.

Below the view you can climb 15 different fixed rope routes (via ferrata). At the foot it is possible to borrow the necessary equipment.

The Děčín zoo is located on the mountain, close to it.

The via ferrata on the Schäferwand is the shortest route to the view.

The ascent at the bridgehead of the Tyršův most (bridge) can be started a little less sporty (approx. 20 min).

Parking spaces can be found directly at the view and below the bridge.
