Excursionist

The lookout tower on the top of Kleť Mountain (1084 m above sea level) is considered to be the oldest stone lookout tower in the Czech Republic. From the lookout tower there is a really nice wide view, in good weather all the way to the Alps.

At the top of Kleť

The top of Kleť is of course dominated by a stone lookout tower, but also a large tourist cottage serving mainly for cyclists, for whom an exit is a great challenge.

Beautiful staircase on the Kleť lookout tower

As you climb to the top of the lookout tower, you will definitely be interested in the beautiful spiral wooden staircase

View straight down

It can be seen from the lookout tower that the top of Kleť is quite large. You will find a few rocks here. Not far from the top there is also an observatory

Television transmitter České Budějovice - Kleť

However, the highest point of the whole massif is not a lookout tower but a 175 meter high television transmitter České Budějovice – Kleť

View of the Šumava and sometimes as far as the Alps

The entire southern direction is occupied by a view of the Šumava ridges and, in good weather, to the Alps.
