Summer in Železná Ruda

The surroundings of Železná Ruda belong to the Železnorudská hornatina hilly region with greater altitude differences than the Šumava plains.
The Železná Ruda district in the Šumava boasts of glacier lakes, the only ones in the whole of Czech Republic.
The dense network of marked tourist paths and cycling routes will take you interesting places in the territories of the neighbouring villages of Hamry, Dešenice, Čachrov and Prášily.
Hundreds of kilometres of marked cycling routes and a dense network or wood roads are the cyclists’ dream land.
A surprising combination of children’s attractions such as Fairy Story Land, Minizoo, children’s playgrounds, mountain tricycle rides or Farm Life can be found within easy walking distance in Brčálník.
The bike park Špičák is probably the best choice in this respect, with free-ride slopes unrivalled in the whole country. It regularly hosts the iXS European Downhill Cup events.
