Rotsen van Adršpach

Rocks of Adršpach (Czech: Adršpašské skály) is a town of sandstone rock formations close to the Giant Mountains between the towns of Adršpach and Teplice nad Metují, in the northern Czech region of Hradec Králové. These sandstone rocks are located at an altitude of approximately 500 meters and are regarded as a nature reserve.

Accessible from Hradec Králové via the E67 to Náchod. Accessible from Trutnov on the R37 and R33 to Náchod.

The rocks have beautiful names such as the Beloved and their kiss, Mayor with his wife, Court House, Sugarloaf, and Polar Bear. Various tourist walking routes have been mapped out. There is also Adršpach, deep among the rocks, where you can take a boat trip. There is also a large and small waterfall.

There are around 1800 rock towers that can be climbed. The rocks of Adršpach were first climbed on May 21, 1923 by Richard Eichler. Since 1966, the Spring of the Mountaineers has been organized every year.
