Trip to Třístoličník


Třístoličník (GE: Dreisesselberg; 1,333 m) is a mountain located near the border of three lands: Bohemia, Bavaria and Austria. It is one of the most important and most visited peaks of Šumava with bizarre rock formations and breath-taking views of the Bohemian inland as well as on the mountain tops of the Alps. It is visited by dozens of thousands of visitors per year. 

The mountain top can be easily reached by car from the German side of the border when going via Strážný and Haidmühle. You can leave your car at the car park; it takes one kilometre to go to access the site; you can even head for a beautiful trip to Mt. Plechý following a ridge trail (7 km) or you can take a train from anywhere in Lipno Region into Stožec. Once you arrive, continue to Nové Údolí (the state border) and follow the red marks to take a hike to the top of Mt. Třístoličník (8 km). The site offers a very cosy restaurant; please note that payment can be done only in euros
