Liberec (21 km)
A statutory city in northern Bohemia and the regional municipality of the Liberec region. It has over 100 thousand inhabitants and is the fifth largest city in the Czech Republic. ZOO Liberec is the oldest zoo in the Czech Republic and is mainly known for its white tigers, which dominate the whole zoo, and which also give their good name to the local hockey team HC Bílí Tygři Liberec. Nearby is a botanical garden, which is also the oldest in the country and has a collection of tropical plants. Other places worth visiting include IQLANDIA, the Technical Museum and Babylon Center Liberec, where an aquapark and an entertainment, social and hotel complex are located. For shopping in the city, you can either visit the NISA Liberec shopping center, which is the largest commercial, cultural and social center to the north of Prague, or in the center of the city is the Forum Liberec shopping center. Ještěd is the dominant feature of the whole city and is located at an elevation of 1012 m above sea level. At its peak is a well-known television transmitter, which has a hotel and a restaurant located at its base. Ještěd can be accessed by cable car, and there is a ski resort on the slopes. You can reach Liberec from Hotel Rehavital by bus, train or you can use the tram, which provides a very unique connection between two cities in the Czech Republic.
Museum of Jára Cimrman (19 km)
Located at U Čápa in the village of Příchovice. While the museum was under construction, a team of “cimrmanologists” led by Zdeněk Svěrák prepared a hitherto unprecedented exhibition documenting the period and the work of the most famous native of Liptákov. Children will be particularly enchanted by the fairytale forest park, where they will find giant stones, whose arrangement will help them guess the names of the fairytales. Part of the new exhibition is Cimrman’s so-called mobile cell, in which prisoners can bask. Příchovice can be reached from Hotel Rehavital by bus.
Harrachov (29 km)
A town and important mountain resort in the Krkonoše Mountains. It lies below Čertova hora in the valley of the Mumlava River and falls under the administration of the Liberec Region. Tourism began to develop very rapidly in this town after the revolution. A huge number of new accommodation and catering facilities of all kinds have been built and opened here. The glass museum, the microbrewery with a restaurant and the hotel with a beer spa can all be seen within a single visit to the Novosad glassworks.
After 1980, the ski jumping and cross-country skiing area was reconstructed, with the highest ski bridge - mammoth bridge - being built. In the 1990s, the cable car to Čertova hora was reconstructed. The cable car offers 130 seats for four people and a 1303-meter-long ride, which takes 8.7 minutes. Harrachov is accessible to visitors of our hotel by bus or train. If you want to really enjoy a trip to Harrachov, a great choice is to use the Tanvald-Desná-Kořenov-Harrachov rack railway. It is one of the last normal track gauge rack railways in Europe and the steepest railway in the Czech Republic.
Bozkov Dolomite Caves (22.6 km)
These caves are located 1 km to north of the village of Bozkov in the Liberec Region and are the only caves in the north of the Czech Republic. Thanks to their rich adornment, however, they have no problem attracting lovers of underground kingdoms from much further afar. The largest underground lake in Bohemia is also located there. Due to their uniqueness, these caves were declared a National Natural Monument. The best form of transport from our hotel is by train.
