Picturesque city under the famous castle
The picturesque town of Loket has only three thousand inhabitants. It is located on a rocky promontory directly below the famous castle of the same name on the edge of the Slavkov Forest. The main artery of the city is TG Masaryka Street, where you will find all important local monuments.
View of the castle Loket
If you are coming to Lokte by car from the D6 motorway, you should park in advance on the edge of Nádražní Street. Although you will have to walk a few hundred meters more, but you will not have to look for parking closer to the center. In addition, it's free here and after a while, an absolutely magnificent view of the castle opens up directly from Ohře.
Bridge over the Ohře
There is also a view of the bridge over the Ohře River connecting the center of Loket with the road leading to Starý Sedlo. There is also a very beautiful view of the castle from the bridge.
Crossroads below the center
To the north below the center is an important crossroads of both roads and hiking and biking trails. However, only five kilometers away is another great attraction – Svatošské rocks.
At the Black Tower
In front of us is the entrance to the center of Lokte and also the first important monument – the Black Tower.
View from the Black Tower
There is free entry to the Black Tower. However, the outlook from it is relatively limited. Even so, it is worth a visit.
Under Loket Castle
Turn into the church street and climb directly under the mighty Loket castle. Most visitors to the city do not miss his visit – in addition to the classic exhibits, there is also a nice view from the tower and a drastic torture chamber.
Descent to the square
After a tour of the castle, descend the stairs to the square, which is full of beautiful exhibition merchant houses.
Square in Loket
The square in Loket is really beautiful. The only thing that spoils it here are a lot of parked cars – as if they couldn't park outside the biggest center.
TG Masaryk Square in Loket
In the square you will find not only a large plague column, but also a fountain. Virtually the whole city is nicely renovated.
View of the church of St. Wenceslas
Afterwards, you are approaching the bridge over the Ohře from where there is a nice view of the second largest landmark of the city – the church of St. Wenceslas
Amazing view of Loket
From the bridge there are beautiful views of the castle and there are also the most tourists, but continue along the road and the panorama will be even better.
More views of Loket
Fortunately, the road is not very busy and you will also find a gazebo. In addition, a footpath leads under you under the rocks, to which you can join the rocks and go down to the river Ohře.
Well-being at the weir
After a tour of the city and a walk, you will definitely welcome sitting on a bench by the weir with a beautiful view of the city.
Under the city walls
From the weir, continue along the river until you reach the footbridge. Here you will cross the river, ascend to the walls and complete the circuit through this beautiful city.
