    2 countries share the Snezka, unfortunately only a snack on the Czech side, but the Polish 🌭 tastes good 🤣🤘

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

  • According to a measurement with laser scanning from the air, the summit of the Giant Mountains Snezka is at an altitude of 1,603,296 meters above sea level. This trigonometric point lies on the summit of the Schneekoppe. In 1936 it was installed and firmly cemented into a compact rock.

  • As the highest point in the Czech Republic, Sněžka is worth a visit. Good weather and clear visibility are gambling. A very nice start for a long hike, if you z. B. from Pec pod Snezkou (yes, the dashes over some letters are missing here). Shortening the first ascent via the cable car has its appeal and is anything but a crime! :-)

  • It was a heartfelt wish! My grandparents are both from the region and somehow I have my roots here too!

  • The summit was already described in the elementary school textbook and even then it seemed like a worthwhile mountain

  • 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.

  • Don't forget to take your crampons when it's icy!

  • When the weather is nice, a great view of Poland / Czech Republic. From the Czech Republic, a gondola leads directly to the Schneekoppe.

  • As the highest mountain of the Sudetes, the Schneekoppe should always be worth a visit ...!

  • 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.

  • The meadow construction (Luční Bouda) reached the day before, there delicious dinner and then very early in the morning (at least 1 hour before sunrise) on Schlessierhaus to Schneekoppe hike and enjoy the sunrise in clear weather.
    For the walk in the dark morning do not forget the headlamp! The path on the wooden planks above the moor is quite tricky in the dark.

  • 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.
