On the very southern edge of the Jizera Mountains, directly below the ridge of Černá studnice (872m), there is the former German village of Huť, now belonging to Pěnčín. The most famous local stop is the Goat Farm, where you can also find the Pěnčín Agricultural Museum. You can make a small walking circuit here, which we will describe now, or go directly to the Black Well.

The Huť settlement is located in the valley of the Žernovník stream directly below the Černá studnice massif (you can reach the source of the stream directly by footpath). Before the Second World War it was a busy village with many services. After the expulsion of the Germans, its importance declined significantly and the nearby Pěnčín became the local center here.

Cottages in Huti

Today, a number of original cottages have become recreational facilities. Some of them lie on the surrounding slopes in semi-secluded areas.

View of the Western Giant Mountains

We will start the walk along the road in the direction of Jistebsko. Soon we will have a beautiful view of the Western Giant Mountains and of course Černá Studnica.

Old trail

From the observation meadow, we descend back down along an almost forgotten footpath surrounded by beautiful trees.

Former school building

Probably the most beautiful cottage in all of Pěnčín is the former school building.

Huť Cemetery

Another point of interest is the local cemetery, which is largely full of abandoned graves – of the ancestors of displaced Germans. There is only a mother of restored tombstones.

Pěnčín farm

We climb the hill and come to the biggest local attraction here – the Pěnčín farm. There is a summer terrace with refreshments „U Husy“ and enclosures with animals
