The Real Krkonose

The Real Krkonose

Pure nature, true experiences

The phenomenon of mountain hiking in the Krkonose Mountains is inseparably connected with the theme of mountain settlement and mountain chalets founded high on meadow enclaves. They are an integral part of the history of the region and today many of them serve tourists and visitors to the mountains.

In cooperation with the operators of selected lodges, we have prepared a network of accommodation that you can elegantly use when crossing the Krkonose Mountains or during a multi-day stay in the heart of the Krkonose National Park.

Enjoy their authentic atmosphere, get to know the real Krkonose Mountains.

Accommodation on the ridges

When to go to the Krkonose Mountains

Experts know that one of the most beautiful times of the year in the mountains is undoubtedly the beginning of summer. From May onwards, the meadows in the lower altitudes bloom and gradually summer comes to the Arctic-Alpine tundra on the ridges.

The Indian summer and the beginning of autumn also have their charm, when the hillsides turn a colourful palette of golden leaves and grass and the stable weather can conjure up unforgettable days.

There is no denying that there are more than enough visitors during the holiday months, especially on the main hiking trails. However, even in July or August you just need to plan your hike a little creatively, take advantage of the weekdays and it is not uncommon to meet practically no one for long hours.

Winter beauty of snow-capped mountains

The mountain huts are usually open from Christmas until Easter. It is a wonderful opportunity to cross the Krkonose Mountains on cross-country, backcountry or alpine skis on well-marked trails.

On the other hand, you have to take into account your own physical condition, experience and equipment. The days are short, the weather is often harsh and in the Krkonose Mountains it is very variable. From an azure day you can find yourself in an unadulterated Nordic blizzard faster than you can say snowman. 

Krkonose National Park

The nature of the Krkonose Mountains hides treasures of world importance, which is why it was declared a national park in 1963. We believe that we do not need to tell you, who can appreciate the beauty of sunrises and sunsets, the silence of the mountain forest and the endless views of the misty distances, about the importance of observing the rules of visitation.

Thank you for your respect and consideration for other visitors and nature.

Long-distance hiking trails

Crossing the Krkonose Mountains can be just a part of exploring our border mountains. Several long-distance hiking trail projects, even bringing together whole communities of enthusiasts, are dedicated to these in detail. As an example:

  • Trail through Bohemia
  • Via Czechia
  • Hř

When your steps bring you to the Krkonose Mountains, slow down. Turn off your pedometer and altimeter and discover the places after which it is worth turning off the shortest direction. Stay in traditional chalets and talk to people who often spend their whole lives here. Get to know the Krkonose Mountains as they really are.
