They been there:

On a smaller hill above the city of Liberec, there is a very nice lookout tower Liberecká víšina (546m). You can get here on foot from the famous ZOO in Liberec or along a narrow road. It is possible to stay here, eat, but most importantly climb to the lookout tower from where there is a beautiful view of the Liberecká basin

The easiest way to get to the lookout tower is from the Liberec ZOO – a relatively short ascent awaits you, almost exactly one kilometer and 130 meters in height along the yellow tourist route. The building itself is on a sunny top of the hill and is dominated by a lookout tower (without it you would practically not see anything, because tall trees stand around like a wall.

Way from the road

Alternatively, you can drive below the height by car, you also have about a kilometer and five turns on a narrow and broken road. At the end of the road there is a small parking lot for about 5 cars, and then only hotel guests can drive up.

The lake below the hill

There is a rock below the hill and a lake below it. It's a small enclosure for llamas and other animals. A small attraction for children.
