Krkonoše Mountains

The picturesque mountain town of Vrchlabí, in ancient times a village of miners, ironworkers and glassmakers, is rightly called the \"Gateway to the Krkonoše Mountains\" and is an ideal starting point for exploring the highest peaks in the Czech Republic.

A number of downhill and cross-country trails, bike trails and hiking trails are prepared for you here. If you're feeling adventurous, then we suggest you try zorbing, quad biking, the artificial climbing wall, carriage rides, a scenic flight over the city or a picturesque horseback ride through the countryside. You can take a leisurely hike or chairlift ascent to Žalý and have a look around from the only stone lookout tower in the Krkonoše Mountains. Also worth a visit are the baroque Augustinian monastery with the exhibition of the museum entitled Stone and Life, a Renaissance castle from 1546, the decanal church of St. Lawrence or the historical Three Houses from the 17th and 18th centuries, with additional exhibitions from the Krkonoše Museum. A popular event among locals and visitors alike is the Crafts Week in July and the Krkonoše Beer Festival in August.
