There are many gardens in Teplice - and I think this garden is the most beautiful one. It is located between the Beethoven spa centre and the Kurhaus/Lecebny ustav. This is where most people enjoy their walks, just sit and watch or read or whatever they do. At the back of Kurhaus/Lecebny ustav a flight of stairs leads up to the Letna hill with nice...more
I recommend that you add a walk from the Zamecke namesti along the gardens eastwards, along the foot of the Letna hill. When entering the district Sanov (the correct name of the town is Teplice-Sanov) you'll see this very beautiful building called Steinbad in German (Kemenne lazne in Czech). It is a spa hotel/sanatorium, built in 1911 and an...more
The so called "Urquelle", where the thermal water springs - it is actually brought up by a pumping station - is located only a few steps from Zamecke namesti, next to the Deanery church. The thermal water comes out with a temperature of 42 Celsius. It is used in a couple of spa centres.more

Teplice has a sufficient local transportation system - buses. Most buses are trolley buses, getting the electric power from an overhead system. When I saw this it reminded me of such buses running many years ago in Germany too.The buses look a bit old and are not very clean, but they have a very modern ticket system. You can either buy individual...more
I took the bus, not the railway, but I inquired about this transportation mode as well, of course. I found, however, that it is not as convenient/fast as the bus, travelling from Dresden.Teplice is connected by trains with Usti nad Labem, which is a stop on the international route (Berlin-) Dresden - Prague. The trains run frequently and are an...more
I went to Teplice by bus from Dresden, which is the most economical way. The bus starts right at the Central Railway station (Hauptbahnhof) and runs every 2 hours (e.g. 9.44 am, 11.44 am etc.). The route is south via Dippoldiswalde and Altenberg, crossing the border in Zinnwald/Cinovec. The buses are convenient and air-conditioned. The ride is 1:37...more
The weather was a perfect 10 on the April day that I toured the northern Bohemian spa city of Teplice. I was drinking a cold Budvar pivo ( beer ) while also drinking in the fascinating sites, when all of a sudden I found myself standing in front of a large and magnificent school building completely surrounded by young healthy looking students. The...more
This church is located in the zamek ( chateau ) area of Teplice. The simple architecture is a refreshing break from that of most churches in the area. No dizzying spires and no gargoyles; just simple but pleasant designs. The church is commonly known as the castle church because of its location at the castle or chateau complex. The church is not...more
Teplice is an industrial city located midway between Prague and Dresden, which like Karlovy Vary is well known for its spa treatments. Not on the tourist map but worth a short visit for those either enroute between Prague and Dresden, or seeking spa therapy. The city Bubonic Plague column sits in front of a beautiful Bohemian art noveau building....more
The Rocks have their specific charm in each season of the year. In spring they awake with wildflowers, in hot summer the Rocks gorges provide pleasant shadow. In autumn the leaves turn yellow and red and finally, when winter comes, the Rocks become covered with twinkling snow.
This Rocks is very popular among climbers as well as walkers.
The 3.5 km long Great Adrspach Rocks Loop is marked with green marks. Follow the mark from the entrance past the Jug and The Sugar Loaf. Following the Metuje Creek flowing through the whole Rock Town you will soon reach the artifical Gothic Gate. Walking along sinous bridges and boardwalks you will cross the Elefant Square. You can walk further along a wide sand-covered trail to the Small Fall ant the Lake Junction. After a scenic cruise on the Lake, you can return back to the Small Fall following the same trail. Then you can take the path leading through the so called -new part- of the Rocks embracing some of the famous rock formations and spires in the area. Steep stairs will lead you to several gorgeous vista points. The loop around the Lake is 1.5km long.
When exploring the Rock area you can also see remote villages with their typical folklore architecture and beautiful churches or you can visit the border towns of Broumov and Police nad Metuij. And you can visit neighbouring Poland.
It is plenty of cheap accomodation in the area and food are cheap and delicat.
Equipment: This walk is easy so no need for any special equipment.
If you are climbing you need your gear.
