    The Edmundsklamm is next to the Prebischtor one of the tourist highlights in the Bohemian part of the National Park, just behind the German-Czech border.

    The Edmundsklamm is a very narrow valley, which was developed at the time of late romanticism targeted as a tourist destination. The development was paid by Prince Edmund (1813 - 1894), the owner of the local area, hence the name.

    The paths created during the development are partially carved in the rock, there are even some tunnels. Finally, the highlight is a weir reservoir, which can only be crossed by boat. For a fee of 70 crowns, about 3 euros per person, or 30 crowns, about 1.50 euros for children, you will be stopped by a boatswain in about 20 minutes through the narrow valley - as in Venice. This tells some interesting things and names the names of many rock formations.

    A beautiful gorge, absolutely worth seeing. Unfortunately today was Easter Saturday and the best summer weather. So there were many other hikers on the way next to us. The waiting time on the first boat trip was 70 minutes ....

    Crossing the Edmundsklamm gorge, part of it on foot and part by boat with exciting hints from the ferryman, is a nice part of a full-day tour to the Prebischtor.

    Going down the street (past the toilets), you come to Prebischtor; If you follow the path along the inn (entrance Klammen) you reach the Edmundsklamm

    The Edmundsklamm-Czech Edmundova souteska-has been named after Prince Edmund (1813 - 1894), who owned the whole area at the time.
    At this time, the crossing came only 17 gulden ....

    The Edmundsklamm is very beautiful. But if you have to pay as a family 2 boat tours that is not cheap. And you have to reckon with many people in the good times.

    This tour from Hrensko to Prebischtor, then continue on the beautiful panoramic path first to the wild gorge, through the Edmundsklamm back to Hrensko - just beautiful and absolutely recommended! Although not completely without with about 18 km, but it is worthwhile in any case! Unfortunately, we did not have this landscape "for ourselves" - but we definitely repeat it at one point!

    Very nice but also very full. The best start in the morning then there's also a parking space (5 €). Between the two gorges there is a kiosk and "normal" toilets (no Dixi 😉). In the afternoon, there may be long waiting times when everyone wants to get back on the boat.
