The town of Děčín is the lowest town on the Elbe River and lies on the border of the Bohemian Central Highlands and Bohemian Switzerland.
In terms of tourism, the city offers many interesting places. The dominant feature of the town is the local castle with its beautiful garden. Another tourist place is the Shepherd's Wall, which also has a zoo and a sightseeing place with a restaurant. In addition, there is a via ferrata on the Shepherd's Wall, which is unique because it can be found almost in the centre of the town. Děčín is an important port and the Elbe River plays an irreplaceable role here. Visitors can use tourist boat lines or rent equipment for individual water sports such as paddleboards or rafts. The popular long-distance cycling route, the Elbe Trail, also passes through the town.
The surroundings of Děčín also offer many tourist attractions. In the Bohemian Central Highlands it is for example Vrabinec or the lookout towers Sokolí vrch and Velký Chlum. In Bohemian Switzerland, it is the national park with Pravčická brána and popular gorges or Děčínský Sněžník.
