About 5.5 km northeast of Jablonec nad Nisou and about 10 km east of Liberec, on the Slovanka hill, at an altitude of 820 m, is our oldest iron lookout tower. It is freely accessible and always open. If you climb the 56 steps to the viewing platform at a height of 14 meters above the ground, you will have a beautiful view of the Jizera Mountains, Jablonec nad Nisou, Liberec, the Giant Mountains and the Bohemian Paradise.

Technical monument

This oldest iron lookout tower was ceremoniously opened in the presence of almost 5,000 visitors on August 14, 1887. It was built in less than three weeks from parts imported from Vienna. The lookout tower gradually fell into disrepair and was closed in 1997 for security reasons. Fortunately, the dilapidated lookout tower was declared a technical monument in 1999, subsequently reconstructed and reopened on July 5, 2000.

Cottage Slovanka

Mountain cottage Slovanka is located directly below the lookout tower. Due to its location, it is a popular base for winter and summer sports and tourist activities. The original cottage burned down in 1895 and a new one was built in 1928.
