The Nature Conservation Area of ​​Altvater Mountains with the 1,492 m high mountain Praded (old father) is the second highest mountains of the Czech Republic. It is located in northwestern Moravia and Silesia, near the Polish border.

Vacation in the Altvater Mountains

Glacier kettle, spruce forests, mountain meadows, stone seas and peat bogs ...
All of this is the nature reserve of the Altvatergebirge (Hruby Jesenik), the second highest mountains of the Czech Republic. It is located in Northern Moravia and Silesia, near the Polish border and belongs to the Sudeten mountain range. Over 500 kilometers of route are available for hikers and cycling. The highest mountain with 1492 meters is the old father (Pradid). Some romantic valleys run between his often rocky peaks with numerous waterfalls where fox and rabbit say good night.

Dense network of hiking and bike paths ...
The mountain landscape forms a wonderful sight, which invites you to combat and hang on the forested tours along the forest. The network of the marked hiking and bike paths could hardly be denser. Nevertheless, this area is not overcrowded by the masses. You can find peace and contemplation here. The picturesque, almost lonely and barely developed Reichensteiner Mountains (Rychlebské Hory) is also part of the old father Mountains. If high human collections are a horror, you can relax here and find the abandoned granite breaks - some of which have been flooded and serve as bathing lakes - explore in the Zulova and Vapenna area on your own.
