Elbe waterfall

Local name: Labský vodopád

Labský vodopád is a mountain waterfall in the Western Sudetes in the Czech part of the Giant Mountains. It belongs to the largest and best known Czech waterfalls. Its origin is associated with backward erosion of the Elbe. The cascade is located 1 km from the source of the river and measures approx. 35.5 m high. The edge of the waterfall is located at an altitude of 1258 meters above sea level

In 1828, a reservoir with a pond was built here, after paying the fee, you could see the high cascade of the waterfall. Then wooden stairs were added. The historic dam is 1 m high, 8 m long and 2 m wide. A view bridge has also been available to tourists since 1987.

Directly above the waterfall is Labská bouda, a Czech tourist hostel in the Giant Mountains, located at an altitude of 1340 m above sea level from around 1970, which was erected on the site of the former burnt building. A marked hiking trail leads through Labský vodopád, which stretches through the Elbe valley to the mouth of the Biała Elbe in Špindlerův Mlýn.
