Adrspach- the Czech rock town

2 minutes to read

The Adrspach region is located in the northern part of Czechia, close to the Polish border, and is part of the Broumovsko Protected Landscape Area. 

The Adrspach Teplice rocks are about an hour drive away from the town of Hradec Kralove. When in Adrspach, one of the most fascinating and exciting places to visit are the Teplice Rocks. The Teplice Rocks are one of the largest rocky towns and rock-like formations in Central Europe, where you can have an enjoyable hiking experience. This place has been popular for hikers and visitors who enjoy being in an outdoor milieu since the 18th century.

The Teplice Rocks are somewhat atypical sandstone formations, which cover an area of 17 square kilometers. Paths are placed within the rock formations, while you can also find a homey wooden hut and several peak points where you can get a beautiful view from. The best views can be experienced and taken using a drone.

Two lakes need to be visited while in Adrspach-Teplice rocks. The first is the Azure lake, which is located right at the entrance of the rock town, and which can be explored with a boat ride.  The second lake is called the High Rock lake; however, it requires some climbing on the ladder, hence it might not be accessible to everyone. This is a stunning lake, which is worth every penny and which can also be toured with a boat ride.

While you explore the Adrspach-Teplice rocks, you will come across a somewhat mysterious castle, called the Stremen Castle, which has been built inside the rock formations. It is unique! If the weather is nice you can climb to the top of the towers from where you will get a pretty magnificent view of the land around you, and perhaps some of Czechia's mountain peaks.  

Last but certainly not least, is the so-called miraculous water, which originates from the springs of Adrspach-rocks. According to some legends, the water has miraculous properties as it cures skin problems, disease, and even blindness. Whether you believe it or not, check it out for yourself and see how it can help you heal.
