The half of Snezka that we walked was very beautiful, was a genuine winter wonderland, I'd say if you have the time (Like we didn't) definitely go all the way if you're planning on hiking it, keep an eye on the weather and time, the hike is recommended for beginners.. but make sure you wrap up warm and follow the correct trail markings else you might get lost, the weather started to take a turn on our way back down, don't rely on Google maps too much (follow the yellow trail), bring plenty of water.

We didn't see any wild animals, but we went in knowing that brown bear were native to Czech and didn't let it bother us at first... until we saw a few big tracks, (Not a tracker/hunter) all I'll say is make better preparations and precautions than we did if you venture out into the woods, the B word wasn't a joke after seeing those tracks and was a bit on edge on the way back.

The sights at the town of Pec pod Sněžkou were also very nice, the townsfolk are friendly, although a lot of the restaurants and shops were closed as well as the cable car up to Snezka (Wrong season maybe?)

Overall great spot for some pictures, snowboarding and hiking, just make sure you're in the right season so everything opens up a bit more and if you're walking the wilderness trails, bring a guide... or some bear spray.

We set off from Špindlerův mlýn at 15:00 and took the bus to Špindlerova bouda. The walk to Sněžka is quite a scenic one. The place was empty, even though it was august. Would really recommend avoiding the classic morning trip - this place must be crowded!

Also - if you go from Sněžka in the Labská bouda direction, you get really nice meadows and moorlands. The path in the valley of White Labe was my favourite part of the whole trip - many scenic waterfalls.

We parked our car in Pec pod Snezkou and took a cable way from there to Ruzova Hora (cca 1300 m) station. Two direction ticket is about 13 EUR. From Ruzova Hora you can easily hike / walk to the top of the Snežka (cca 1600 m). You will need about hour and a half to the top, maybe even less since the trail is easy even for kids, dogs, older people. In the July, temp on the top was 8 C and the wind was 70 km/h so take a good clothes. And when we climbed to the top, we were in the clouds and big strong fog, so we couldn’t see nothing. View is usually good but not for us that time. So watch out for the weather if you wanna enjoy the sight view from the top. There is restaurant on the top so you can seat there for a drink or food.

Snezka hill in Krkonose hill is the highest hill of Czech Republic (1603 metres), directly here goes the Czech-Polish border.
There are several ways how to reach this beautiful place - juset by walk from Pec pod Snezkou, Velka Upa and other places, you can have a great trip along the marked tourists roads or you can use (partially or completely) new cableway Pec pod Snezkou - Ruzova Hora (Pink Mountain) - Snezka...It good to know that in case of strong wind (e.g.as today) the second part of line (Ruzova Hora - Snezka) is from security reasons closed - and you will have to finish your tour finish by foot...Please be aware that whole way is around 2,5 km and in the second half of the way you have to pass 1 km of steps, where you will have to spend much more effort, power and energy - more demanding climb stairs made of stones. Steps are higher and long. But, after your efforts to reach the top you will be rewarded by magical, spectacular view.

I live in Czech Republic and nature are my biggest passion, so I really don't understand why people prefer to go to this place again and again, giant mountain have some of the nicest nature in europe but its not right here, go to Harrachov and walk along the wild river full of waterfalls, or take the lift to the top and walk along the top down to the river and waterfalls.
Or go to Adršpašské skály close to Trutnov, and see the wonderful sandstone formations, or Czech paradise, or Czech Switzerland and so no and so on.

Being the tallest mountain of Czech Rep, Snezka is a popular spot if visiting Czech Rep for a longer time or coming from Germany or Poland. A new Chair lift that runs from the parking lot (actually about 1 km from the parking lot to the start of the lift) to Ruzova Hora and second part runs from Ruzova Hora to Snezka. (if you are walking from the parking lot take a path that runs through the forest on the left side of the road- no cars and more shade). Just before the lift reaches the top it runs close the the edge of a cliff and it is REALLY windy there all year round. If the wind is stronger than 60 km/h the lift only runs to Ruzova Hora (for safety reasons). So if you want to make sure it will run all the way book couple days in the area just in case. And be ready to WAIT. The line ups for the chair lift are really long - 60-90 mins being normal. So unless your health stops you, go for it and climb to the top! There are 3 ways up - the one from Ruzova hora is probably the easiest one (unless you hate stairs - it has 362 of them!). My 6 year old daughter made it no problem ! The view from the top is incredible - esp. on a bright sunny day. Our favourite way down is through Lucni Bouda, Vyrovka and then down to Pec pod Snezkou. Fastest way is to Obri bouda and then through Obri dul back to Pec. All routes are quite rocky so good shoes are a must even if you take the lift up and want to just "walk down".

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!

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.

Most foreigners take the tram but they are missing out. We took a hike from Pec pod Sněžkou to Růžohorky then to the peak. Sněžka is the highest mountain of the Czech Republic. One thing to consider before hiking, the peak is usually about 10C cooler so bring a windbreaker in June. Also, the weather does turn bad very fast. It’s not just something the park service say. If you’ve never hiked then you will struggle but it’s so worth it. The view, the quiet surroundings as of course birds singing their hearts out the whole distance of the hike.

Queued for over an hour. Views are good but nowhere near as spectacular as the Alps. Nothing at the top but a very basic snack bar. So, yes, I've seen it, is it memorable. No, not really.
