1. Route - Miller’s trails

Miller‘s trails are located across Špindlerův Mlýn and its surroundings, passing through the quiet zones of the Krkonoše nature outside the traffic routes. They are especially suitable for families with children, who can enjoy a lot of fun along the route at several playgrounds and also learn interesting facts about history. All trails start in the city park at the statue of Špindlerovský Miller, which is twelve minutes by foot from our guesthouse - near to Savoy Hotel.

The paths are marked according to the miller’s scarf:

Miller’s nature foot trail – green track – 1,1km

Miller’s round trail – red track – 2,8km – suitable for strollers

Miller’s hike – blue track – 3,1km

2. Route - Vrbatova bouda, memorial of Hanč & Vrbata and Dvoračky

You can start this trip at the station of the Medvědín lift, take it to an altitude of 1235 m above sea level and continue along the ridge of the mountains through Šmídova vyhlídka directly to Vrbatova bouda (5 km). This road is narrower and more suitable for pedestrians. However, if you travel with a stroller, an asphalt road that leads from the upper station of the lift directly to Vrbatova bouda will be more suitable for you (7,5 km).

The second option is to set off directly from our pension along the path to Horní Mísečky. This route starts steeply from the beginning on asphalt road and gradually changes to a gravel / dirt road (3 km). There are three options in Horní Mísečky. The first option is to continue straight on and follow the winding asphalt road to Vrbatová bouda. This route is recommended especially for families with strollers (4.5 km).

The second option is the most advantageous in terms of time and views. It starts near to Jilemnická bouda (which is located in Horní Mísečky) and you will continue along the red tourist route. From the beginning you will climb a rocky path through the forest, but in about 1.5 km you will be enjoying beautiful views. From this path is possible to see Trosky (the ruins of the Castle) and also Ještěd (radio transmitter near Liberec). The total length of this route from Horní Mísečky is 3 kilometers.

Last way how to get to Vrbatova bouda is to use the possibility of a bus, which runs from Jilemnická bouda every half hour in the summer season.

At Vrbatova bouda you can enjoy typical Czech blueberry dumplings or traditional Krkonoše soups. Above Vrbatová Bouda is Memorial of Hanč and Vrbata, which refers to the fateful day of March 24, 1913, when Václav Vrbata tried to save his good friend Bohumil Hanč during a 50-kilometer cross-country skiing race in bad weather. This day 24.3. became on behalf of these two heroes the day of the Mountain Rescue. From this Memorial you can see almost anything – Sněžka, Sněžné Jámy, Labská bouda, Špindlerova bouda and mountain peaks.

If you continue straight towards Harrachovy kameny (800m) you will enjoy a beautiful view on the valley and the highest mountain of the Liberec region – Kotel (1435m above the sea). From this viewpoint you can continue along the red road to Dvoračky, where is a famous restaurant (3 km). From Dvoračky you may use a narrow path, which is marked with green color and passes through Kotelní Jámy back to Horní Mísečky (7 km).

3. Route - Sněžka, the highest mountain in the Czech republic

You should visit Sněžka – it is one of the most interesting places in the Czech Republic. With its elevation of 1,602 meters above sea level, it is the highest mountain of the Czech Republic. Sněžka Mountain is a major landmark of the eastern part of the Krkonoše Mountains.

The summit of the Sněžka Mountain is a frequent tourist destination accessible through numerous tourist paths. The summit can be reached either on foot or you may take the ropeway from Pec pod Sněžkou. As the Sněžka mountain is the highest point in the area, you may enjoy a great panoramic view of the surroundings from its summit. Receptions desk of our boarding house will gladly provide you with detailed information for planning a trip from Špindlerův Mlýn up to the Sněžka Mountain.

The average year-round temperature at the summit of the mountain reaches only about 0.2 °C. Border between the Czech Republic and Poland leads through the summit of the Sněžka Mountain. The summit can be reached by the ropeway from Pec pod Sněžkou some 4.5 km away. The northern Polish side falls down to Lomnička River Valley, the southern side to Obří důl, western side to Úpa Moor, and the eastern side passes into Obří hřbet.

Sněžka was given its name in the 19th century. It comes from the word Sněžná (Snowy) – or “covered by snow”. The first Czech name was Pahrbek Sněžný (Snowy hillock), then it was called Sněžovka, and from 1823 it has been called Sněžka.

The summit of the mountain is rocky and its area is about 120,000 m².

The first recorded climb dates back to 1456, when a man from Venice searched for precious stones in the mountains. A Silesian scientist, Kryštof Schilling, was trying to measure altitude of the mountain from 1563 until 1566. He measured unbelievable 5,880 meters above sea level (1,000 meters more than Mont Blanc). In 1569, Jiřík of Řáseň measured 2,035 m.

We strongly recommend not to underestimate weather. Please bear in mind that weather in the mountains changes suddenly. If there is a clear sky in the morning, one hour later it can be a completely different story. Do not forget to take suitable clothing to protect yourself from changing weather conditions.
