Hamrštejn (although it is a ruin of castle) is a popular tourist destination between Liberec and Chrastava. It is well accessible by train (Machnín Hrad stop) or by bike along the No. 20 Odra-Neisse. Go to a little sightseeing trip, along the trail there are educational boards.

Our tip:

When visiting Hamrštejn, we recommend not to forget another local attraction, which is almost within sight of the ruins:

Transborder

You can find it in the direction from Hamrštejn after crossing the railway tracks and moving to the river under the viaduct. 

Transborder is a suspension bridge over the Nisa river for manual drive. Passengers move the cabin directly by pulling the rope. The chain hoist is designed in such a way that passengers do not have to exert great force. The transborder project comes from the architect Martin Rajniš.
