ACTIVITIES

The options for active relaxation in the vicinity of the hotel are more than appealing. The almost virgin (previously untouched) border area is still one of the few places where you can walk all day and not meet another person. The forests are interspersed with lakes, ponds and meadows, and criss-crossed with numerous hiking and biking trails.


Hiking

The hotel stands on the very boundaries of the protected national nature reserve of the Komorní hůrka natural monument – the youngest volcano in Central Europe. Several steps from the summer terrace will bring you to this protected landscape with a volcanic crater, where volcanic ash was mined in the middle ages. The special characteristics and climate of the soil make it home, among other things, to one species of orchid – commonly named the Green-winged Orchid (Orchis Morio).

In Františkovy Lázně, you can sample the curative waters: Františkův, Nový, Solný, Lužní, Palliardi, Železný, Stanislav, Luisin, Glauber I, II, III, IV, Sluneční, Natáliin, Štěpánka, Žofiin, and Kostelní. The springs help cure urological disorders and problems with metabolism and digestion.

Other popular places for hiking are the SOOS natural peat bog with mud volcanoes, the Seeberg Castle, or the historic town of Cheb, with the famous Špalíček, a compound of bourgeois buildings from the 15th Century, and a castle, whose Black Tower is built of the volcanic stone quarried from Komorní hůrka.

Further afield, it is possible to visit other spa towns by car: Lázně Kynžvart, Karlovy Vary, Mariánské Lázně, the Kladská nature reserve or the Premonstratensian Abbey in Teplá.


Cycling

There are excellent opportunities for cycling tours in the area of Komorní hůrka. Numerous biking trails are diverted away from automobile traffic, and there is an array of interesting tourist spots in the area. Cyclists can visit the Seeberg Castle in Ostroh, the castle in Starý Rybník, the castle in Skalná, and of course the Cheb Castle, the chateau in Libá, the famous pilgrimage place of Maria Loreto in Starý Hroznatov, as well as pilgrimage points in nearby Germany. The nearby SOOS natural peat bog with mud volcanoes is a popular tourist attraction, as are the romantic clay ponds, the Skalka Reservoir on the Ohře River and the Jesenice Dam, with its famous, half-sunken bridge and clear waters for a refreshing swim. A complete list of biking trails would be too long. Just take your bike and come visit us.


Golf

Local and foreign golf lovers have taken a liking to golfing holidays, and we invite you to one of the youngest and, we dare say, most beautiful courses in the Czech Republic, where you can look forward to 18 demanding holes in the picturesque landscape of the Ohře nature reserve. Our partner for golf holidays is Františkovy Lázně Golf Resort k.s. According to many players, the Františkovy Lázně/Hazlov golf course ranks easily among the best, not only in the Czech Republic, but also in the entire Czech-German border area. You can also enjoy the nearby courses at the Sokolov Golf Club, Astoria Golf Club Cihelny, Karlovy Vary Golf Resort and Royal Golf Club Mariánské Lázně.

When playing, you can apply our 20% discount to the Green Fee. The discount will be issued upon request at the hotel reception desk.


Horseback Riding

A short walk will bring you to the horse rental stables just 1 km from the hotel. The owner organises rides in the countryside or lessons with a trainer at the riding corral, both in English and Western style. They offer calm, well-ridden horses that are suitable even for beginners. The friendly pony Sultan looks forward to taking any children.

The other horse rental operator also offers training lessons in a sand corral or hall, in addition to tours.
The price per hour is CZK 350.


Tennis and Ball Sports

The hotel has its own multifunctional court for tennis, volleyball and footy ball, which hotel guests may use at their leisure.



Nordic Walking

Nordic walking is normal walking with special poles. The upper half of the body is much more intensively used during walking, which means more muscles are involved and more calories are burnt. Despite the simple name and method, this is a highly effective form of exercise. According to doctors and physiotherapists, Nordic walking has a number of positive effects on human health.


Dune-buggy Rental

The rental facility is about 1 km from the hotel. Rides are possible along natural terrain routes, making this adrenaline experience quite the adventure.
Dune-buggy rentals cost CZK 600 for 30 minutes, and CZK 1,000 for one hour.


Boat and Motorboat Rental

The romantic area of the Skalka Reservoir, with steep forested banks, is an ideal place for meditation. A boat trip costs only CZK 100 for half a day, or CZK 150 for the whole day. The distance from the hotel is 1.5 k.


Go-cart Rental on Go-cart Track

The newly built racetrack for go-carts and motorcycles is just 9 km from the hotel. Boys will love it, and even girls and parents are sure to have a good time.
The price for a 10-minute drive in a sports go-cart is CZK 220.


Fishing

Fishing in the Františkovy Lázně region has a great tradition. A carved stone was found near one of the publicly accessible ponds dating back to the year 1493. The hotel’s suitable location enables sports fishing in three nearby ponds, the closest of which is just 200 metres from the hotel.

Target Fish: Carp, tench and pike.
Fishing Permit Price: CZK 220 – 500 per day, depending on the pond.
