    Great tour along the upper Kirnitzsch. Start at the hiking car park Buchenparkhalle to the upper lock, from there by boat or alternatively hike, then to the Wolfsschlucht (blue and white marking) along the Kirnitzsch and back towards Hinterhermsdorf. When the weather is nice, the climb to Königsplatz with a great view is still worthwhile!

    We preferred the short section.
    For children, the boat trip is certainly an experience.
    One possibility would be to hike and ride back by boat🛶

    The Kirnitzsch has dug deep into the sandstone rock and forms the border between Germany and the Czech Republic. On the German side of the raft reminiscent of the former trade, it leads along the gorge and offers fabulous views of an original forest vegetation.

    The creek is dammed in the warm seasons before the upper lock, here you can make boat trips (Easter to October, adults 5 €, youth 4 €, families 10 €).

    A boat trip in the wild and romantic Kirnitzschklamm ranks among the most popular destinations in Saxon Switzerland. After about 45 minutes walk from the parking lot Buchenparkhalle you reach the boat station. Source: hinterhermsdorf.de/obere-schleuse.html

    For the brave one can choose in the end the steep and narrow ascent :) However one should not be too broad and have not too big backpack thereby

    Even without a boat on top of the raft platform is a real adventure

    If you want to explore the Kirnitzschklamm on foot, you should definitely walk the raft platform.
    A great experience, but you should take sturdy shoes with you ... 👍🏽

    A small romantic gorge forms the border between Germany and the Czech Republic. The ferries are silently advanced by ferrymen by hand and rowing. Incidentally, they still tell something to the story and nature. The distance is just under 700m and you're well on the water for half an hour. Then you can continue hiking or even back by boat. From the signposted parking lot it takes about 45 minutes on foot. A great hike!
