If you have a day off from the tracks, or when the weather is bad, you can take your children to the Krkonose Museum in Vrchlabi.

Non-ski zážitky s dětmi

Non-ski Experiences with Children

We can give advice on what you can do with your children during your winter holiday in the Krkonose. Do you want to have a day-off from skiing? Try sledges, or take a short winter walk! And if the weather isn’t good for outdoor fun? Just dive into museums, swimming pools or aqua parks.

Sáňkařská dráha Černá hora


There are excellent bobsleigh tracks in Spindleruv Mlyn and in Janske Lazne. Children will certainly enjoy the rides, which are several kilometres long. You can take your older children on special night rides. The track in Spindleruv Mlyn is equipped with lights, but on the Cernohorska track you will have to use head torches and a guide.
When Krakonos, the master of the mountains, is generous enough to give plenty of snow, you can use sledges and bobsleighs on almost every hill. Look at our tips on where you can go, if you can’t use a meadow right next to your hotel.

Sledging in Krkonose

Snowtubing Park Bedřichov


Riding on an inflatable tyre on a snow-covered track is popular entertainment for children as well as adults. You can try it out, for instance, in the Formanky Snowtubing Live Park in Janske Lazne or Bedrichov Snowtubing Park in Spindleruv Mlyn. There are more opportunities, see Snowtubing here.

Bobová dráha Špindlerův Mlýn

Bobsleigh Tracks

The tracks here are open all-year round, try them out in winter, too, and enjoy the views of the snow-covered landscape before you go straight downhill. Try the oldest one, the technically unique track in Spindleruv Mlyn. Or the longest one – the Berta bobsleigh track in Mlade Buky.

Getting Around on Foot Is Also Possible in Winter

Glittering drifts which go up to one’s waist, the snow crunching under your feet, this is what the Krkonose is like in winter. Take your children for a short winter walk. If you add some snowball fights or throwing snow and ice into the River Labe, they will certainly be enthused and you will forget all your worries.
Ideal walk can be  around the Bile Labe river in Spindleruv Mlyn, while in Harrachov you can walk along the Mumlava river to the waterfalls and to the Krakonosova snidane junction. In Benecko, take a walk to the Zaly viewing tower and ride a sledge on your way back.

Aquapark Špindlerův Mlýn

Swimming Pools and Aqua Parks

Besides the many indoor pools, whether public or at hotels, which in many cases can also be accessed, we recommend two aqua parks in Spindleruv Mlyn. The Spindl Aquapark is opposite the Medvedin chairlift station and offers three water slides, including one for inflatable boats, a wild river and a whirlpool. You can fully relax in the saunas, during a massage or in the salt cave. The Bedrichov Wellness Centre will provide entertainment for your children in the water paradise, while parents can rest and enjoy the care of the wellness zone.


Museums and Excursions

There is a lot to enjoy indoors in the Krkonose, too. Just discover some of the Krkonose’s museums, get your children acquainted with the special nature, history and culture. We also recommend some interesting interactive excursions which will draw the children right into what’s going on. They can try out making Christmas tree decorations at the Rautis company in Ponikla, or see how glass can be blown at the Sklarna Novosad glass factory in Harrachov.
To see all indoor activities, go to When the Weather Is Bad.
