This trip is one of the most beautiful in the Bohemian Switzerland and it is mostly thanks to beautiful views. The trip starts by the hospital in Děčín and continues along the red touristic track up along massive rocks with a view platform called Stoličné Hory. Then it continues still by the red track to a turning to Snežnická Vyhlídka and then to Labská Vyhlídka with very beautiful views of the river valley. After a few hundred meters the red track connects to a wider road leading close to the edge of the rocks above the valley to Lidvíkovice. In the beginning of the village the trip goes left to a stream and continues to a WWII cemetery. It continues to climb again to the edge of a sandstone terrace above the river and to the crossroads of the Růžová Vyhlídka (Rose Lookout). The red track continues without major differences in height to a wider path leading from Bynovec to Labská Stráň. Here we can see the beautiful view of Belvedere, which is the oldest in Czech Switzerland. We continue through the village Labská Stráň up to the valley of Suchá Kamenice and from there to the left along its flow down to the road along the bank of the Elbe. It follows this road to the right to Hřensko, where the trip ends.
