Kögler’s trail

The path begins in Krásná Lípa with sightseeing in the reconstructed town park. The route then continues to the top of Kamenná Horka with a beautiful view over the Šluknovský promontory and České Švýcarsko. The trail continues to the former limestone mines close to Doubice along the Lužický fault to Kyjov, then over Vlčí Hora and Zahrady back to Krásná Lípa. The entire trail includes forty different posts. These stations have various activities. We can see a replica of a charcoal kiln or a unique geological map in Zahrady.  There is plenty of interesting information about the local landscape and its history.

The original trail was projected and completed in the thirties by a native of Krásná Lípa, Rudolf Kögler. Unfortunately, it ceased to exist after The Second World War. It was not possible to restore the trail until 2006, thanks to the project “Center of České Švýcarsko,” which included four other buildings (the Visitor’s Center, The Center for Services, the Sports Compound, and bike paths). This project was financed using EU funds and money allowed from the state budget in the total amount of 160 million Czech crowns.

Small chapels and crosses, stairs, paths and even natural springs along the trail have been repaired. Information boards, displays, gazebos, and rest places have been built. The geological map in Zahrady lived to see its reconstruction as well. During the reconstruction, Krásná Lípa's town hall cooperated with the following organizations: the descendants and inheritors of the Rudolf Kögler Czech Tourism Club in Krásná Lípa, Forests of the Czech Republic – the forestry office in Rumburk, the Nature Conservation and Administration for Labské pískovce and the Lužické Hory, the Administration of the National Park České Švýcarsko, the firm KonstruktivaKonsit, translator Tomáš Saloven, the owners of the involved estates, and many other institutions and people.

The trail can be divided into several stages, and so it can be experienced even with children in about two days or more. At the town's information center on Křinické square, you can buy a Czech or German guide for the trail, as well as a very detailed map of it.
