The dominant feature of the small village of Jestřebí, located right next to the busy junction of the main roads 9 and 38, is the lookout rock with the rest of the castle. A branch from the main tourist route E10 (Máchova cesta) leads to the castle. A steep staircase takes you to the top plateau with beautiful views

Jestřebí

Right on the outskirts of Jestřebí you will find two restaurants – Hostinec Na Rychtě located in a historic timbered building and next to the Restaurant under Habstein. Here it is possible to park and head in the direction of the castles. Along the way there is still a large playground, which will be appreciated especially by small children
