Walking tourism

Come with us to explore Rokytnice nad Jizerou in a different way than by skiing, and you will see that even in other seasons it is as beautiful as in winter!

Spring, summer and autumn in Rokytnice nad Jizerou are ideal periods for walking not only to the tops of our mountains, but also for trips to the near surrounding. Choose one of the trails, for example to the Dvoračky chalet, to the Labe spring, to the hut Vrbatova bouda, to the hut Vosecká bouda, to the Memorial of Hanč and Vrbata, or to Harrachov or even to Poland. The GIANT-MOUNTAINS CYCLE BUSES, which go from June to September, will definitely be of big help.

It depends only on your mood, desire, and abilities; there is definitely enough to choose from. You will be rewarded by beautiful untouched countryside, magnificent flora, clean air, views of distant surrounding, romantic and calm moments with your family or friends.

Paseky nad Jizerou - a mountain village spread over the hillsides of the Příchovický mountain ridge with beautiful timbered mountain cottages. In the building of the vicarage, there is a museum, in which samples of loom weaving, flax processing and wood lathe-turning are gathered. A part of exposition dedicated to the art of local violinmakers, above all of a teaching assistant and writer V. Metelka (1807-1867), is very interesting.

Beautiful mountain cottages of the Giant-Mountain type with typical decoration of gables were preserved. Another important building is a Baroque church of St. Wenceslas from the end of the 18th century. In the former vicarage, it is possible to visit a museum – Memorial of Forgotten Patriots with expositions remembering local famous violinmaker Věnceslav Metelka with demonstrations of typical folk crafts.
