The Ore Mountains are a 150-km-long mountain chain on the border of Germany and the Czech Republic. This is the basin of the Ohre (Eger) and Labe (Elbe) Rivers, with extensive coniferous forests along the banks – a true paradise for hiking, cycling and mountain biking along the numerous signposted routes. The neighborhood is also rich in sports facilities: miniature golf, tennis, fitness spas in Jáchymov, swimming in Ostrov nad Ohrí (10 km, a complex of 3 pools) and thermal baths in Karlovy Vary (20 km). Springs of 72º C spurt water to a height of 12 meters. You can stroll in the so called colonnades where Tsar Peter the Great, Goethe and Beethoven once walked. Or you can go shopping and admire the Bohemian crystal and porcelain with the famous “onion pattern”. History and architecture go hand in hand in lovely little towns like Klášterec nad Ohrí (33 km, with a 19th century castle, statue park and porcelain museum) and medieval places like Ostrov (10 km, a renaissance-baroque castle and castle park) and Kadan (41 km, a market place, town hall, baroque Trinity pillar, ruins of old walls and a former executioner’s house). Bohemia is known for its fine cuisine and there is nothing better than finishing your day with a delicious meal in one of the small restaurants directly in the neighborhood.
