A circular hike – including bus transfer at the start – from Špindlerův Mlýn to Mount Sněžka and back.
Mount Sněžka or also known as Schneekoppe in German is a mountain on the border between the Czech Republic and Poland. At 1,603 metres its summit is the highest point in the Czech Republic, in the Krkonoše and in the entire Sudetes range system.
Špindlerův Mlýn is one of the most well-known and most frequented mountain resorts in the Czech Republic located in the Krkonoše mountains.
We parked on one of the public parking areas in Špindlerův Mlýn. From here we could either take the bus or arrange a mini bus transfer to hotel Spindlerova Bouda.
The short drive saved us a big climb already. Don’t worry, it’s still 9.5km to the top and immediately starts with some more climbing. On foot from now on!
After all this was a very rewarding hike. It has a very wide variety of terrain. Both steep and flat parts over rocks, board walks across mountain plateau bogs and through a forest at the end. Splendid views on both the Polish and the Czech side of the mountain.
