The tallest mountain close to CeskyKrumlov at 1084 metres above sea level, Klet' would be joy even if all you could do is ride a scooter to get there. Once you reach the foot of the mountain at Krasetín station near the village of Holoubov, you can either take the chair lift, or you could ditch the crowd and simply hike up the forest trails. From the city, it's a gentle three hour uphill walk - from the train station, follow the trail marked in green on the road and on the trees. The chair lift is nearly two kilometres long, and rises 383 metres. The countryside is somewhat fairy-tale like, full of woodland animals.
At the top, you'll find an observatory tower built in 1825, easily identified by the red and white TV aerial. The 360 degree view from the top… there's no words to describe it. You just have to be there. Let's just say that on a clear day you can just about see the Alps in the distance.
When descending, the red trail leads down to Zlata Koruna, and the yellow trail down to Plesovice. You can rent footbikes at the tower to cycle back to town.
There's an interesting legend associated with the mountain's castle - see if you can get someone to tell it.

The forest was magnificent. But we couldn't find a way to the top. There were no direction signs
Wonderful mountain to have a hiking tour. From train station to the top it takes roughly 3h. It is a really good exercise to walk up to the top - for this you need a certain level of physical strength. If you like it more comfortable just take the lift. The top really rewards you with a stunning view to budweis, Cesky Crumlov, etc. Wow!
Very nice panoramic view from the top of the tower
The location marked by google is not correct it made me lose so much time
