Walking & Hiking

Sušice Cobweb

To learn more about Sušice, follow the „Sušice Cobweb“. The eight educational trails will take you through the town and its surroundings. You will see the town from many different angles – as a Royal town rich in history and cultural landmarks but also as a modern town featuring beautiful architecture from the 20th century. You will see a Sušice which was once the cradle of match production but also a town that supported the Hussite movement. The Stations of the Cross will offer you an opportunity to rest and ponder. There is also a trail along the River Otava where you can go wild with your kids. This network of circa 20 km of walks is marked with the sign of a cobweb. Each walk has its own colour.
