Adršpach (German: Adersbach) is a village in the Hradec Králové Region of the Czech Republic. It has around 520 inhabitants.

The village is divided into the administrative areas of Dolní Adršpach and Horní Adršpach (Lower Adršpach and Upper Adršpach). It is located close to the border with Poland.

The place is known for Adršpach-Teplice Rocks (or Adršpach Rocks,[1] ), ruins of Adršpach Castle (Adršpašský hrad) and Adršpach Manor House (Adršpašský zámek).

The rural area around the village was used as the filming location for the winter scenes in the 2005 film adaptation of The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe, one of the Narnia books written by British author C.S. Lewis.
