The Vysoký Ostrý (high sharp) Lookout

Vysoký Ostrý (altitude 587 m), the so-called Elbe Rigi, is a distinctive basalt cone with a beautiful panoramic view. In good weather, it offers a view of the entire Bohemian Central Mountains, Říp, Bezděz, Ještěd, Studenec, Růžová, Děčínský Sněžník and the Krušné Mountains. 450 m deep below the view, the mighty Elbe flows.

A green tourist route leads to Vysoký Ostrý, as well as the Pod Vysokým Ostrým nature trail, which you can start from Střekov Castle and continue along the Sluneční stráň viewpoint to Vysoký Ostrý and all the way to Brné.
