Belveder (Labská Stráň, Czech Switzerland)
The Belveder lookout is a stepped terrace on a 180-metre high sandstone rock. It offers beautiful views of the Elbe canyon. The Belvedér Hotel is located in the area, where a refreshment stand is open during the tourist season.
History: the owner (František Clary-Aldringen) had the rock levelled and a terrace created in 1701-1711. The terrace was used for musical performances for the estate and its guests. The salla terrena still bears the coat of arms of the Clary-Aldringen family. In the 19th century, Belveder was connected by a carriage road about 4 kilometres long to the (now defunct) castle in Bynovec, from where the estate used to travel for entertainment.
