Mariánské Lázně and Kynžvart, Western Czechia

Mariánské Lázně is in the far West region of Czech Republic close to the German border. The main attraction is the many mineral springs (over 100) which gave rise to spa popularity. Similar to the Karlovy Vary town which is also famous for spas and the annual film festival, Mariánské Lázně is more low key.  The Western Bohemian spa triangle includes another town called Františkovy Lázně.

We did not stay here, but only parked near the center and started the 31k trip from town with the beginning going mostly uphill. Most of your ride will take you through forested area of the Slavkovsky les (forest). We can recommend stopping in Kladská at the restaurant “U Tetřeva” and where there is a sign with the history of the recently renovated hunting castle (point 6 on the map).

After point 7 (highest point of the trip) you will enjoy a long ride downhill to Lázně Kynžvart, where you should taste the water from the spring Helena or Viktor (point 9) and continue to visit the castle Kynžvart (point 10).
