    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).

    The Snezka is at 1603 m the highest peak of the Giant Mountains.
    According to Wikipedia, it is also the highest mountain of the Sudetes, the Central European mid-mountain threshold and the Czech Republic.

    If possible, avoid the Czech and Polish holidays, otherwise it will be as full as seen in the photos.

    At the top in Silesia. But the way there is the same as snow and ice on an ant road. Only a few have suitable footwear.

    Great view in all directions. It's worth the climb. Of course there is also a cable car.

    A beautiful view, it is very windy so get dressed warmly. And those who find cheap glasses from Netto can keep them 😂

    Nice and cozy way on the "ridge" towards the summit of Schneekoppe.

    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.

    For the first part of the tour I recommend the chairlift. This one is then at an altitude of about 1200 meters.

    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.

    At the top in Silesia. But the way up is like an ant street.

    The tour was certainly worth it. Too many people for my taste. I went up and down again with great weather and great views. But unique for me.
