The fallen King of spruces

This giant and very old tree was one of symbols of the town and its history, but was unfortunately damaged during violent storm last year. According to the legend, the tree was planted probably the same year when the town was upgraded to an official Spa resort. The huge fallen tribe was left on its original place, so you can still come and admire its beauty. The path to the King of Spruces is leading through a silent forest and it’s a right choice especially if you’re looking for some silent place to relax.

The stone of king Friedrich

Nice cluster of rounded granite boulders is located in the part of Marienbad called „The Little Switzerland“. It was also a popular viewpoint in the past, these days unfortunately overgrown by high trees around. But it’s still romantic and enjoyable not only for children or as a nice place for picnic. The place is dedicated to one of the famous visitors – the bavarian King Friedrich August II.

Kladská

Smraďoch

The name of this place means „stinky“ in english and there’s a reason why is it called like that. The special swamp (exactly „moffetes“) is interesting not only because of the natural gases, springing around from the ground. This little remnant of the historical volcanic activity could be a funny tip for the families with children, but both for the lovers of mysterious places. There’s a lot of stories about ghosts and paranormal activities around – and as well, it’s just few steps from the famous abandoned hotel Nimrod, known as the real house of horror.

Podhorní hill

The mysterious hill with two peaks and a popular viewpoint on the top is an extinct volcano. In earlier times locals believed, that there’s a home of the Spirit of the Hill – the ruler of the nature and weather. Climb the stone stars and enjoy one of the Best views in whole region, or find the hidden natural gem – the old peat bog with a smelling seepage of volcanic gasses.

Border area and the Dyleň hill

Explore wild forests, unacessible during the communism for more than 40 years. There are not many places in the Europe with the nature intact and pure like here. Don’t miss the highest point of the region – the top of the Dyleň hill, or the historical milestone of the centre of the Europe marked supposedly by Napoleon Bonaparte.

Border area

Three Crosses

This place is unique with its atmosphere but as well because of the incredible nature around. But please, if you plan a visit, stay thoughtful and strictly follow the pathways. This small natural reservation is a home of extremely rare flowers and plant species, which are endemic and could be found only in this area today. This is also one of the best locations of the entire region to watch the sunset.

The Kajetán pond

The mysterious Kajetan pond is a stealthy place situated in the middle of the woods. It’s named after its founder Kajetán, the earl von Berchem-Haimhausen and the royal chamberlain.  During the communism it was a part of a refugee trail, but unfortunately monitored by a communist secret police called „StB“ – so many people lost all their hopes and dreams right here on this place, while being arrested. Today is this place freely accessible again and it’s offering pure natural beauties – the dark and cold pond is surrounded by green swamp and the deep and wild forest. The pond surface is covered by beautiful white flowers called „ďáblík“, but be careful – it means „a little devil“ in english and it‘ s because the flower is highly poisonous.

Branka – little waterfalls

This forest is sincerely wild and it’s hiding really fairytale sceneries. Follow the river which is overcoming thousands of rounded rubblestones and making the little waterfalls between them. The nature here is highly protected (especially the water). Discover the ruins of an old medieval mill or take a rest in an absolutely silent and uncivilized environment of the border woods.

SOOS

Unique protected natural area, sometimes called as a „Czech yellowstone“, is something unmatched in all the central Europe. Mud volcanos, bubbling springs and variegated mineral waters create bizarre sceneries looking as somewhere in the Iceland. Highly recommended for photographers, families with children or everybody who loves the nature. Accessible for wheelchair and trolleys.

Bečov nad Teplou – Botanical garden

This botanical garden is really special, and not only because of its famous history. Don’t expect so much formal attractions (the garden is still under the reconstruction), but the most friendly atmosphere you could ever imagine. „Touch the nature“, that could be a motto of this incredible place. And as well, this is probably the only botanical garden opened 24 hours a day!

Svatošské rocks

The canyon of the Ohře river, engraved into the giant granite rocks, is something for words are not enough. The shapes of the rocks resemble the wedding procession and maybe you don’t know, that one of the most popular fairytales written by Hans Christian Andersen is inspired by a story originally narrating right about this beautiful scenery. Perfect place for biking, walking, canoeing or mountaineering, recommended also for families with children or as a very romantic place for couples in love.

Biking around Marienbad http://www.visitmarienbad.com/biking-around-marienbad/ http://www.visitmarienbad.com/biking-around-marienbad/#respond Fri, 14 Apr 2017 04:56:39 +0000 https://visitmarienbad.com/?p=1368 Biking in Marienbad

Long or short, easy or really challenging, passing throught the busy tourist destinations or throught the absolutely silent and wild nature, full of sightseeing or even thematic. And in all these cases well-marked and easy to orientate. Yes, we are talking about biking and walking trails around Marienbad. Enjoy the comfortable infrastructure, fresh air and pleasant Central-European weather, as well as the amazing nature and romantic historical towns and villages along the routes.

West of Bohemia is criss-crossed by biking trails and there’s something for everybody. Here you have some our recommendation:

Easy riders

Visit the charming Kynžvart castle and parks around. Relax in the romantic forest chapel or take a guided tour and visit the famous „Cabinet of couriosities“ (and much more). There’s also great restaurant available. The trail is 20 km long and the biggest part is leading through a forest, so it’s enjoyable during hot summer days too.

Families with children

Use a cableway to go to the top of the Krakonoš hill. There you can find the Boheminium miniaturpark, nice fairytale statues collection or a mysterious and romantical castle, adapted to a luxury hotel. After you‘ll enjoy enough of interesting attractions here, follow the road around the deer-park and after 4 kilometers of slow descent (see the map here) you’ll enter the natural children playground in Prelát park.

Biking hardcore

The requested ability of this ride is high, but it’s something absolutely unigue and if you want to enjoy the real adventure, this is the Best choice. The trail is a part of the longest European bicykling route established under the EuroVelo project and called „The Iron Curtain Trail“. It will take you to forgotten places in the border region, where was impossible to go for almost a half of century and whole this time it was used by soldiers only. Discover abandoned military objects or absolutely intouched nature. Get ready for the difficult terrain and long distances with almost no civilization.

Before you choose, read what you should know about bicycling in Czech Republic.

The Colonnade(s) http://www.visitmarienbad.com/the-colonnades/ http://www.visitmarienbad.com/the-colonnades/#respond Fri, 14 Apr 2017 04:55:56 +0000 https://visitmarienbad.com/?p=1364 Marienbad Collonade

If somebody in Marianske Lazne says „The Colonnade“, usually it means a Colonnade of Maxim Gorkij known as well as a „Main“ Colonnade. But maybe you don’t know, that in fact you can find four fantastic colonnade buildings in Marienbad and each has its own magic. Anyway, you don’t know enough about this nice little spa town without visiting all of them.

The Cross Spring Colonnade

The oldest colonnade is roofing a Cross Spring and in a certain sense this building is a real heart of Marienbad. Inspired by the Roman Pantheon it’s a peak of 3 parts of town parks and it’s offering mystical impressions – enjoy the game of light and shaddows between corinthian columns, atmospheric circular spring seepage, forming a single unit with a roof dome and an impressive gilded chandelier. There’s a souvenir shop where you can buy tradicional tasting tumblers – don’t forget to taste Carolina and Rudolf springs as well.

Czech name: Kolonáda Křížového pramene | GPS: N 49°58.67913′, E 12°42.39645′ | show on map | more information

Cruise Collonade

The Main Colonnade

This promenade is just incredible! The new Baroque building with its long above 180 meters is based on an iron construction and it’s combining unique industrial architecture with romantical impresses of an old-time high society. But the most surprising is a cellar decoration – yes, there are astronauts and a space satelite on the ceiling frescos! How is that possible? Colonnade was renewed in 70’s and this cycle of ceiling frescos is actually pretty modern and it’s showing a human’s desire to fly. It’s a work of artist Josef Vyleťal, famous czech surrealist and a personal friend of Salvator Dalí.

Czech name: Hlavní kolonáda | GPS: N 49°58.59548′, E 12°42.36985′ | show on map

Main Collonade

The Karolina’s Colonnade

This small collonade is ending the main promenade and offering nice views of the Catholic church and the opulent building of the „New Spa“. The Colonnade was rebuilt in its present form in 1872, but in fact, the building is only 30 years old. In 1986 was the water spring too fade and all the colonnade needed to be moved about 10 meters aside. The best solution was to make an exact new copy of the old building and later destroy the old one. But before it was finished, for more then one year there was two exactly same colonnade buildings just next to each other! You can still find a place of an original seepage, it’s marked with a circle from the tiles and it’s situated between the present colonnade and the street.

Czech name: Karolinin pramen | GPS: N 49°58.53868′, E 12°42.43902′ | show on map | more information


Karolina Collonade

The Ferdinand’s Colonnade

The peaceful place, situated in the park and ideal to take a blanket and make a picnic, or just enjoy the rest and quiet around. The Empire styled building is from 1829 and is roofing the oldest water spring found in Marienbad. It’s called Ferdinand, because this famous emperor was the first one, who ordered the investigation of the water source because of the opportunity of producing the table salt. Unfortunately the salt had a laxative effect, so finally it needed more than 200 years to find a proper use in healing therapies. The park around the colonnade is also the Best place in a town where to play petangue (check out local tournaments), frisbee or other outdoor games.

Marienbad Springs

The drinking cure

If you want to feel the positive effect of mineral water on your own skin, there are some simple rules that you need to keep in mind. At first, don’t drink too much of water from one spring – the ideal amount of one kind of water is around 2 dcl (buy a tasting tumbler – it has an appropriate size) and you can repeat the cure three times per one day only. There are some springs drinkable also in larger quantity – for example the water from Rudolf, Ambrož or Antonín is drinking as a common water. But even in this case the amount of drinked water should not be larger than one liter per a day.

If you are among those who rather than touristic spots prefer a mysterious beauty of abandoned and forgotten places, we have some tips for you also from Marienbad and its vicinity. Admission is on your own risk, but courage will return to the visitors in the form of impressive shots and unrepeatable experiences.

The „Forest Mill“ Hotel

It was rich and pompous gem of the town – the hotel with first class service and spacious gardens, located a few steps from the Forest Spring. Today it’s just a sad ruin, overgrown with dense vegetation of wild bushes. The hotel is locked and is no longer possible to enter the interiors of the building, which is literally falling apart – but exteriors still invites to romantic notions.

Czech name: Hotel Lesní Mlýn | GPS: N 49°58.87568′, E 12°41.94867′ | show on map 

The „Lil“ Villa

Princely villa in the heart of the town was in the past one of the most luxurious hotels in general. Within the famous guests can be found the name of Emperor Franz Joseph I, but also later Czech presidents Masaryk and Beneš. The name means “Look in land”, and the high turret offered a truly breathtaking sight previously. According to legends the villa is cursed and considering its fate in recent years it seems to be truth. Although the reconstruction should been finished years ago, it has never been completed and still is not possible to enter the building these days.

The „Nimrod“ Hotel

The famous House of Horror is a frequent tourist destination for lovers of mystery, paranormal and Urbex. The building is unsecured, so it is possible to enter (on your own risk) into the crumbling interiors. Be extremely careful – thanks to the raids of vandals and swampy ground around the building deteriorates its technical condition significantly each year, and in some rooms there is a risk of ceilings and floors crash actually real.
