  • Domazlice Square

    This is a very attractive square , really a wide street with coloured buildings under czech state care of historical buildings. The short adjoining side streets are also picturesque. Plenty of shops and places to eat and drink. A feature of the square is the white round tower of the church ,which can be climbed to the top for about 60 koruna. The...

  • Chodsky Hrad - The Chod's Castle

    Only a few steps away from the upper end of the historical centre is the castle Chodsky Hrad. There are only a few of the original walls of it left, it was often rebuilt. The castle was the place where th Chod's Letters were kept safely throughout centuries. These letters were the guarantee from the Bohemian kings for a number of big privileges the...

  • Oversized Town Hall and Memorial plate

    This small town got in 19th century an absolutely oversized Town Hall in typical Austrian Historism style which was characteristic for the "ink castles", the administrative buildings of this period - in some way a demonstration of the power of the imperial government. It is with its proportions in some way "killing" the buildings around it.A...

  • The Remains of the Fortification

    There is not too much left of the fortifications of old Domažlice. Most remarkable is the Lower Town Gate (Dolna Brama) which was built around 1270.Between some houses you can find other remains.

  • The Market Square

    The centre of Domažlice is the long and slightly inclined Market Square. At its lower end the Lower Town Gate (Dolni brama), in the middle opposite to each other the Leaning Tower and the Town Hall. All other houses are in baroque style and have arcades.

  • The Leaning Tower of Domažlice

    Maybe you do not fully notice it at the first glance but after a few minutes on the main street/square you feel that the highest tower around is a bit strange or at least unusual. You might consider that it is the perfect white cylinder - a bit thicker than a Turkish minaret and complete different as compared to other Czech church spires. But after...

  • Do the Domazlice Festival in August

    The St. Laurence Festival is like a county fair, arts/crafts show, music festival, and ethnic entertainment all wrapped up into one. Ethnic song and dance groups from around the Czech Republic participate. It's surprising what diversity there is among the regions of Czechia in music, dance, costumes and variations on the Czech cuisine. Lectures and...

  • Visit the Surrounding Villages

    There is a string of quiet villages that lie between Domazlice and the Bavarian border. These Chod villages were created in medieval times as part of the royal plan to guard the border and to control commerce.Today these villages offer historical sites and small, local museums that often don't make the English language guidebooks. Also, there are...

  • Catch the Night Watchman

    This reenactment takes place every evening. The actor explains the history of the event in Czech and English.

  • Visit the Chod Museum

    The Chod were a Bohemian people brought to the region to protect the border and control the trade routes. From the 13th through the early 17th centuries they were given special rights and freedoms by the King of Bohemia. They were allowed to convene their own courts, and were free from feudal taxes and allegiance to any local feudal lord. Their...

  • Climb the Watch Tower

    The wooden stairway that spirals up inside the 56 meter (12 stories) tall tower leads past the old church bells to an observation deck. The tower dates from the Gothic era and leans slightly. That fact along with the cramped confines of the stairs makes climbing a challenge but one worth the effort for the views of the town.

Domazlice Restaurants

  • Tasty food

    Small family run restaurant with outside tables under arches of street. Food very tasty and cheap. Lamb, dumplings and cabbage in sauce. Duck seems to be what the owner suggested but i dont like duck. The lamb was great.

  • Quite many "ethnic" restaurants

    Quite surprising to find so many "ethnic" restaurants in such a small town. Within a few minutes I could spot one Greek, three Asian and one Italian restaurant. The Greek (right after entering the Centre through the Lower Port) looks quite upmarket, the menues outside were in several languages but didnt show the prices. The Italian was closed...

  • There are better places in Domažlice

    There is a narrow street going down from the church with the round leaning tower. And there I saw a blackboard announcing (in German, for the majority of the tourists here) "Heute Böhmische Ente" (Bohemian Duck today) and pointng to the restaurant just a few steps down this narrow street. Since a duck prepared the Czech way together with red...

Domazlice Transportation

  • Day train trip from Germany

    I did the train trip from Regensburg Germany via Furth to Domalice MESTO . Note Mesto is the nearest to the town centre not Domalice. Mesto is a tiny station about 450 metres from town. I travelled at about 09-30 with a change at Schwandorf and Furth. From Furth to Domalice Mesto the train is a Czech one carriage train. Also from Regensburg a...

  • Interesting one-day international train...

    Domažlice is easily reached by train from Prague via Plzen. And domestic Czech train tickets are really cheap. From the neighbouring Bavaria some interesting tickets are available. The best is - in particular on weekends - the Bayern-Ticket. This is a one-day pass valid on all regional trains and buses in Bavaria plus all Bavarian Integrated...

  • Car to Domazlice

    Whether you fly into Prague or Munich, car rentals are easy (no problem driving a rental from one country to another, but you must notify the rental agency that you are doing so). Driving in the Czech Republic is not a problem (except that Prague offers some driving challenges). And, of course, the autobahns in Germany are a dream. Local and back...

Domazlice Sports & Outdoors

  • pknopf46's Profile Photo

    by pknopf46 Written Jan 27, 2008

    There's at least one biking/running/hiking path in Domazlice. There's a creek that runs two blocks to the west of the historic center's main boulevard and parallel to it. Cross the creek and turn right on the road that runs along the creek. In about a half mile you will see a bike/running path that continues west alongside the creek. It continues for at least 3-4 kilometers toward and beyond Havlovice.
