At the very southern end of the Rychleb Mountains, above the district town of Jeseník, you will find the Jeseník Spa, also known as the Priessnitz Spa. In addition to medical treatments and walks in the nearby surroundings, the Jeseník Spa is also a good starting point for longer hikes

View of the Jeseníky Mountains and Praděd

If you are not staying at the spa accommodation, park approximately 600 meters below it and then follow the footpath to the red hiking trail. From the meadow there is a wonderful view of the Jeseníky Mountains, including the highest mountain in the range – Praděda.

Birthplace of Vinzenz Priessnitz

Finally, we ascend to the southern part of the spa. The first place we come across is Priessnitz's bir­thplace, where the Vincenz Priessnitz museum is now located.

Priessnitz Sanatorium

From the fountain there is a nice view of the huge Priessnitz sanatorium, which from a distance looks like some kind of castle. It is by far the largest building in the entire spa area.
