The Trails at Adršpach-Teplice Rocks
Guide yourself along the well-marked trails at Adrspach and pass the most incredible spots of the natural reserve. Around each corner lies a new, unique, and incredible perspective of the rock labyrinth.
The rocks at Adrspach-Teplice were once at the bottom of an ocean. Over the years, winds and rains eroded the rocks, giving it its distinctive shape.
Main trail loop
The main trail in Adrspach is a loop of 7 km. There are some steep stairs and declining parts on the trail, but nothing too intense. The hiking trail is fairly easy to follow, but it is recommended to wear good shoes as it is muddy and slippery. The trail takes approximately 3 hours, including the many stops for photos.
Lake trail loop
When entering Adrspach, the first thing you’ll see is a stunning lake with clear waters. In the early morning, fog floats over the water, making it an extra magical sight. The walk around the lake is also the first trail to follow; this is a 1.5 km loop. However, we recommend following the whole 7-km trail to see a bit of everything.
Lake boat ride
Halfway through the main loop is a second lake where you can take a boat ride or rent a rowboat to admire the rocks from a different angle. This detour will add an extra 2 km to your total trail in Adrspach, and the boat trip costs 50 CZK (2 USD).
