Harrachov town is mainly known as a ski resort. Two chairlifts bring skiers and snowboarders to the top of Čertova hora (Devil’s Mountain). Thanks to modern system of artificial snow making it is possible to ski up to 5 months in a year. If someone does not have or can not ski, the problem can be quickly solved by local ski schools or ski rentals.
Local mammoth bridge (one of five mammoth bridges on the world) is known because World Cups in ski jumping takes places in here and many spectators come to Harrachov to watch the race from all over the world.
Harrachov is a good choice not only for downhill skiers but also for cross-country skiers. Cross-country skiers can find a large number of regularly groomed trails that are suitable for classic style and for skate as well. Jakusczyce (PL), which is literally a paradise for cross-country skiers is not a long way from Harrachov.
If you want to have a break from winter sports, you can visit local glass factory joined with brewery and museum, mining museum or ski museum. You can also go on a hike to the Mumlava falls, where nice ice scenaries are formed in winter.
