Tour Details

The Šumava mountains region is a large mountain range along the southern Czech border between the Vyšebrodský Průsmyk (Vyšší Brod Defile) and Všerubský Průsmyk (Všeruby Defile). It lies between the small towns of Vyšší Brod (near the Czech-Austian border in South Bohemia) and Všeruby (near the town of Klatovy in West Bohemia). It is the spring area of the biggest Czech river Vltava and of the important South Bohemian river Otava (the tributary of the Vltava river). The Šumava region is about 120 km long and it lies on both sides of the border. The German part is called Bavarian Forest. The width of the mountain range is about 45 km. The highest peak of the mountains is Gross Arber – Velký Javor in the Czech language – (Big Maple – 1,457 m), which lies in Germany, not far from the town of Ţelezná Ruda. Plechý mountain (1,378 m) is the highest peak of the Czech part; it lies near the state boundary near the beginning of the Lipno Dam.
