Outing Tips

Jindřichův Hradec and its vicinity is a much sought after location by both domestic and foreign tourists. Visitors who are active in sports will find plenty of attractive biking routes in the countryside with abundant lakes and forests (e will gladly lend you maps with biking trails). Not far from the owner’s house is a hiking trail in the woods suitable for roller skating. Swimming is possible in the sand pits nearby (Jindřiš- 3km, Jarošov nad Nežárkou -2 km) or in the aqua park (4 km), which features multiple recreational facilities, e.g., a heated pool, a toboggan (82m), and other attractions, such as wild river, massage nozzles, water bell, etc. For more information go to: http://bazen.jh.cz/. Mushroom hunters can start picking mushrooms right behind the house. Culturally inclined guests may opt for a visit of the State Castle and Palace of Jindřichův Hradec: http://www.zamek-jindrichuvhradec.eu/, Municipal Museum (Krýza’s Nativity – the world’s largest mechanical nativity scene) http://www.mjh.cz/sekce/36-kryzovy-jeslicky, Museum of Photography http://www.mfmom.cz/muzeum.html, and the Tapestries Gallery http://www.dumgobelinu.cz/. In Nová Bystřice (23km) is a very interesting museum of car veterans http://www.muzeumveteranu.cz/

Noteworthy are also the Renaissance towns of Třeboň (35 km), Telč (36 km), Dačice (39 km), and Slavonice (40 km). Particularly attractive is the State Castle of Červená Lhota http://www.zamek-cervenalhota.eu/ and the Landštejn Fortress http://www.hrad-landstejn.eu/

The local railways of Jindřichův Hradec, Místní Dráhy, operate two narrow-rail tracks to Nová Bystřice and Obrataň http://jhmd.cz/. During the summer season, the train is frequently pulled by a historic steam locomotive, which is a great experience not only for children.

A private horse stable in our village, named Zelený Ráj, offers horse riding for experienced riders as well as beginners, both children and adults. For more info go to: http://www.zelenyraj-rodvinov.cz/.

Since Jindřichův Hradec is situated close to the borders with Austria (27 km), outings to nearby historic towns of our neighbors is a logical and frequently used opportunity.

Information on current cultural and sports events is available on the bulletin boards in the apartments.
