Very nice trip up to the hill, better to walk. Nice view from the top of the hill. There is more ways to go up.

A great hike for anyone with average fitness
Jul 2020
Highest point in Czech Republic. A relatively easy climb, a couple of routes from Pec. cable cars if your not up to the climb or decent.
Didnt have much of a view from the top as very cloudy but did get a glimpse of Poland from the top :)
Was very quiet the whole climb and the summit was busier.
The main restarant was closed, Maybe due to C19, I really dont know but the post office was open and they also serve hot dogs and drinks as well as been able to send a postcard from the highest point in CZ :)

Amazing Views from the top!
Oct 2019
We took the ski lift from the Karpacz side all the way up to the top. The view are spectacular and you could easliy spend hours just wandering around. There is a little cafe for refreshments and toilets available which is handy as its a bit of a walk from the ski lift to the rest area. Wear conformable shoes and bring a warm coat and enjoy!

Beautiful walk, to much people on the top
Sep 2019 • Couples
If you are athletically inclined, it is really fun to walk the blue route to the top. It is a steep and intensive walk, but the path and views are beautiful. The waiting lines for the gondola both up and down the mountain are ridiculously long and cramped. The day we went, the top of the mountain was super overcrowded and it did not feel safe. But the walking tour up the mountain wasn't busy at all and definitely worth it.

A Beautiful View of Krkonos Mountains
Jul 2019
Snezka is the biggest tourist attraction in the Pec pod Snezkou area year round, probably with the exception of skiing during winter. There is no driving here, and by extension no parking here as well. Technically, visiting the mountain is free, if you hike up. If you aren't into hiking then your only other option is taking the cable car from Pec, which isn't free. To me the price is worth the trip. Be aware of the weather for the day because the cable car can be shut down during high winds and stormy weather.

We came here in summer, but on the day we went a cold snap had come thru. The temperature at the peak was only 3°C (37°F), so might want to prepare a jacket with you just in case. Even though it was cold, the day was sunny so we had a great view. The mountain is on the border with Poland and there are markers which show the direction of the border. On the Polish side there is the old Baroque Chapel of St. Lawrence dating back to 1681. On the Czech side there is a post office, with a gift shop and a refreshment stand. You can buy and send post cards from here, if you wish.

We spent about 90 minutes at the top but you can really see everything quicker. The biggest problem is that it gets very crowded, so getting pictures at times can be tough. You just have to deal with it. Getting back down is the same as going up. You either walk or ride. You choose. :) I recommend going to the top. We took the cable car because we have small children, but we plan on coming back one day when they are a little older and doing the hike. As we understand it isn't that difficult for beginners, but it is long and if you are not used to hiking anyway then it will be a challenge. I recommend coming here. It doesn't disappoint.

Nice walk with great views
Jun 2019
It is best to walk from the lower gondola station on the green path towards the Růžohorký hut. Then along the yellow path, to the top. The path is wide and mostly paved with large stones.

Crowded

Very crowded at the peak. People refuse to read signs that shows warning that one way is to the top and the other is down. But overall besides the crowds its perfect view.

A must for mountain lovers
Sep 2018
The higest mountain (1665m of Krkonoše and the Czech Republic with stunning panoramatic views from the summit. On foot best approached from Pec via Obří důl and up the south flank, quite steep but with a well maintained, mostly paved path/stairs. If you don´t want to exert yourself, you can take a cabin lift all the way up and down (the upper part maybe closed in windy conditions). Refreshments and WC available on top.

Great hiking with great lookouts
Oct 2018 • Couples
We hike Snezka from Pec pod Snezkou every year since our childhood. In sunny weather, you have amazing lookouts from the top. I recommend to go on to Lucni bouda (great beer and food) and Vyrovka back to Pec pod Snezkou. In total it is 16 km and takes about 7 hours at a comfortable pace.
During summer season Snezka can be a bit crowded, mainly weekends. Definitely recommend in lower season - May, June, September, October
Check the weather forecast before you go, the weather can be totally different from Prague.
