With Children to Mount Snezka

With Children to Mount Snezka

Pec pod Sněžkou

You can dare to climb the highest Czech mountain even with the youngest children! Feel free to climb to the summit of Mount Snezka with small climbers, whether by cable car or on foot.

To make your trip really worthwhile, we recommend that you go outside the main season. In summer, on holidays and weekends, many of us want to climb it, too. If you want to avoid an uncomfortable queue for the cable car and the crowds at the top, plan your trip for the spring or autumn.

If you want to go in the main season, set out early morning or afternoon. You will not only spare yourself the stress, but will also help our valuable nature. Don’t forget that the summit of Mount Snezka is in a conservation area. Do not walk off the marked paths and behave considerately.
