"Jested : best views of the region" Liberec Things to Do Tip by Coolietje

Liberec Things to Do: 47 reviews and 134 photos

One of the main attractions of Liberec is a visit to the television tower on the top of the mountain Jested with his 1012m, the highest hills in the immediate surroundings of Liberec.

No panic you don't have to climb all the way to the top. There is skyline/cableway who takes you to the top in less than 5 minutes. From the top you have fantastic views over Liberec and the whole of the northwest of the Czech Republic. In the television tower you can drink and eat something while you take in the view.

After that you can take the skyline back down (easy way) or you can walk all the way back to the start (like we did). The normal walking distance is around 6km (1 hour at normal speed but with some steep sections) but you can make it as long as you want. In that case you can best buy a map at the tourist information, altough all the walking routes in this region are very well signed.

In winter there is the possibillity of skiiing at the three small ski areas around the mountain.

Directions: Jested lies 10k south of Liberec. You can park the car at the foot of the hill and take the skyline to the top OR you could drive all the way to the top yourself and park there. Altough I wouldn't recommend it in the high season (small parking, full=full)
