The Krkonose mountains are a popular recreational travel destination for many visitors that take advantage of the nearly unlimited possibilities for sports, leisure time activities and culture. During the summer months, visitors can explore well marked hiking and biking trails, as well as the local flora and fauna. Outdoor swimming pools, mountain chalets and cafés offer refreshment and relaxation.

Travelling season:
The hiking and cycling season starts in May and has its peak in July and August. Autunm is our insider tip for hikers and bikers as it offers mostly good weather conditions and beautifully coloured forests. A little further up in the mountains even some snow would be no surprise at this time of the year.

Voltage: 220 V.

Nature conservation in the Krkonose Mts.

enlarge picture:  * Krkonose Mountains (Giant Mts)

Many visitors don’t perceive that the nature in the Giant Mountains is in a state of serious endangerment. Paradoxically, while prestigious international institutions (Dutch foundation FACE, European Union, UNECSO, The World Bank) help to rescue the valuable nature of the Giant Mountains, we ourselves continually destroy it. The worst menaces of today are not only pollutants but also unregulated invasion of tourism.
You can also contribute to this effort to preserve the nature of the Giant Mountains for future generations by following the visitor regulations of the parks, signs and information boards.
