CZ, Loučná pod Klínovcem – Autumn in the Ore Mountains

Published: 16.12.2021
Where to go with your children for the weekend? The Ore Mountains are ideal. There are many possibilities of accommodation - either in the highest situated Czech town Boží Dar, or perhaps in the quiet town Loučná pod Klínovcem.

The small town is located directly on the German border, which is largely made up of the Polava River, and the local border crossing for pedestrians follows the German spa town of Oberwiesenthal in Saxony. It is mainly a winter sports center, but even outside the ski season there is still a lot to do. There is a lot of activities for children - bobsled, rope center or nature trails. In the mountains there are plenty of trails for hikers and trails for lovers of MTB or monster-scooters. There are also many asphalt roads suitable for roller skates and road bikes.

Loučná pod Klínovcem a Oberwiesenthal

The town of Oberwiesenthal (founded in 1527) is located at an altitude of 914 meters and is Germany's highest city. In the surroundings of Loučná pod Klínovcem and Oberwiesenthal, there are three peaks that invite you to climb. It is Klínovec - the highest mountain of the Ore Mountains, Fichtelberg and Eisenberg.

Today we head to the top of the German mountain Fichtelberg. The marked trail is connected under the cable car. It starts first on an asphalt road, which gradually turns into a gravel road, until it subsequently becomes a forest road. It also crosses the ski slope once, offering a magnificent view of Oberwiesenthal and Loučná pod Klínovcem. Along the way we pass the bobsleigh track and Fly-line suspension slide. The climb is undemanding, while there are also several rest areas. You can also get to the top by a classic chair lift, by bus or by the oldest cable car in Germany. Fichtelberg reaches a height of 1,215 meters and is the highest peak of the German Ore Mountains. There is the Fichtelberghaus with a 31-meter-high observation tower and a weather station.

From the top you can take many other trips, for example to nearby Boží Dar or to several cities in the German part. However, we continue back in the direction of Oberwiesenthal (according to the indicator), however, a little round trip, which can be several times interestingly shortened. Fichtelberg is really full of visitors, but this route we go to our joy almost alone.

On our way home we pass the local narrow-gauge Fichtelbergbahn from Cranzahl to Oberwiesenthal. There are only trains drawn by stylish steam locomotives and we are already planning how to set out on our next trip.
