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, is 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 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 very intense. The hiking trail is fairly easy to follow but it is recommended wearing 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 extra magical. The walk around the lake is also the first trail to follow; this is a 1.5 km loop. However, we recommend following the usual 7 km trail to see a bit of everything. 

Please note: Getting off the trail is prohibited.  

Lake boat ride

Halfway 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. The boat trip on the lake costs 50 CZK (2 USD).
