Svojkov is a pleasant starting point for several tourist circuits with attractions such as Modlivý důl, Slavíček or Dědovy kameny. However, before you go hiking, take a short tour of the Svojkov rock castle

Svojkov - starting point for tours

The best starting point for hikes around Svojkov is the parking lot directly opposite the Zámeček restaurant. From here you have basically only hundreds of meters to the castle

At the Svojkov castle

From the car park, walk a few meters along the road (direction Svojkov) before you come across the gate to a freely accessible pavilion, where various celebrations are often held. From there across the lawn to the nature sign and up the stairs and a slight ascent directly under the sandstone rock. It can be seen on the ruins that a large part of the building has already „fallen“ and only hints of rooms and stairs remain.

The rest of the wall

The fact that the castle was quite large in the past is also indicated by the preserved wall connecting the main block with the side rock
