Sumava is an area of outstanding natural beauty in the Czech Republic, close to the Bayerische Wald in Germany. During the cold war, this area was off-limits – which was excellent news for the wildlife in the area. Parts of Sumava have been ravaged by acid rain but despite that, it is a wonderful place to visit at any time of year.
How to get there
There’s an early (07.07) train from Prague main station direct to Hamry, taking just over three and a half hours. Check the timetable for details.
Where to stay
A lovely place to stay is Hotel Kollerhof near the village of Hamry.
Where to eat
Well, hopefully you’ll have a packed lunch for your hikes but Hotel Kollerhof has fantastic food.
