Hiking Tours from the Hotel
The beautiful surroundings you will find in the Oberlausitz Region make it particularly inviting to spend your recreational time in nature. Hiking and cycling are very popular activities. The trails are easy to navigate thanks to excellent signage. Among the most visited destinations are the Bieleboh*, the Czorneboh*, Mönchswalder Berg*, the Valtenberg* or the Picho.* Stop at any of these places to take a break and catch your breath.
We also recommend our 8 round tour hikes (* all hills in the Oberlausitz Region).
If you prefer to go on a hike without a backpack, we recommend the Hill Land Tour, on which you will pass the “Umgebinde” houses on the route to the 3 springs of the Spree River.
You are spending the night at the quiet Hotel Am Lärchenberg amid beautiful surroundings in the “Gem of the Oberlausitz Region” – Schirgiswalde. It is the perfect departure point for your hiking tours. Depending on your own physical condition, you can complete these hikes in a day or even half a day.
We suggest you try the following:
Hike to the Mönchswald Hill (the rebuilt scenic view tower offers spectacular views of Northern Bohemia, into the Zittauer and Iser Mountains as well as Saxony’s Switzerland).
Hike via Neukirch to the Valtenberg, elevation 587 m, which makes it the Oberlausitz Region’s highest hills.
See the typical “Umgebinde” houses and enjoy breathtaking views in Weifa, one of the most beautiful villages in the Oberlausitz Hill Region.
Hike to Crostau via the Kälbersteine and stop by the church to admire the Silbermann organ.
Extend your excursion into the Czech Republic via Sohland to Rozany and Sluknov … or ask our reception staff for further tour suggestions.
