Many roads lead to Rome: we chose the chairlift from Karpacz (observe operating times - inform in advance !!!). We reached the "Kleine Koppe". From here it is about 1000m to the Schlesierhaus. Even here you can enjoy beautiful views.
Now there are 2 ways to climb the Schneekoppe: a very steep and strenuous way (we recommend it!) Or a longer, easier way (we took it as the way back).
Sněžka (Sněžka in Czech, Śnieżka in Poland) is the highest peak in the Giant Mountains at 1603 m. At the same time, it is the highest mountain of the Sudetes, the Central European mid-mountain threshold and the Czech Republic.
The state border between Poland and the Czech Republic runs over the summit. The summit lies above the tree line and is accessible to tourists. Especially in the summer months he is the destination of many visitors. On the summit, on the Polish side, there is the Laurentius Chapel, next to a futuristic-looking mining building from the early 1970s and on the Czech side a post office and the summit station of the gondola lift starting in Pec pod Sněžkou.
In the case of changes in the weather with snow and strong wind, the last part of the summit ascent (coming from the ridgeway from the west) can freeze in such a way that the chains disappear under the snow and advance some climbing (crampons, crampons) requires.
