Welcome to Janské Lázně
The Janské Lázně Spa, located in the town of the same name, has a long-standing reputation as one of the best spa facilities in the Czech Republic. It is also an ideal starting point for sports and recreational activities in the Krkonoše Mountains.
The unique combination of a world-famous spa and a top sports centre in the Czech Republic creates a wide range of activities for visitors.
The natural healing resources are the thermal mineral water of the hydrocarbonate-calcium-sodium type, which springs up in the spa area as Janův and Černý Spring and supplies all hydrotherapy treatments and swimming pools, and the local foothill climate.
The Spa Town
Janské Lázně successfully treats diseases of the musculoskeletal system, including conditions after injuries and surgeries, nervous and neuromuscular diseases, polio and multiple sclerosis and other diseases.
We also achieve excellent results in the treatment of respiratory diseases such as asthma, or conditions after respiratory surgery and cancer diagnoses.

Interesting Hiking Routes in the Summer Season
Length: approx. 5.5 km
The starting point is on the square with the Art Nouveau Kolonáda (Colonnade). You will then take the direction to the Vesna Children’s Sanatorium, from where you will climb up the ridge directly or take a gently ascending path through Rudolfovo údolí (the Rudolf’s Valley). You will return to the centre of Janské Lázně by going past the lower station of the Černohorský Express cable car.
Rudolfovo údolí is named after Crown Prince Rudolf of Habsburg, who visited Janské Lázně in July 1876 on the occasion of the 10th anniversary of the Battle of Trutnov. The reward for climbing Střední hřeben is a place with a beautiful view of the spa town and Černá hora. Along Střední hřeben, you can comfortably reach a well-known touristy spot, Hoffmanovy boudy (Hoffman’s Huts) with its original inn. It has been welcoming visitors since 1889.
Length: approx. 5 km
Starting point is on the square with the Art Nouveau Kolonáda (Colonnade), then you go past the Janský Dvůr spa house up to the Lesní dům hotel. From there you walk along the promenade (an asphalt road) to the bridge over the Černohorský potok (Černá hora Brook). Luisa’s path takes you to the left after the bridge and to the gazebo.
Luisa’s path is named after Countess Aloysia Czernin-Morzin, who made the Vrchlabí and Maršov Estates flourish in the second half of the 19th century. It took 5 years to build a 2-metre-wide walkway to the foot of Pardubické boudy (Pardubice Chalets), then Kuhnelovy boudy (Kühnel’s Chalets). In 2003, the KRNAP Authority carried out a demanding reconstruction of the first bridge and the lower part of the walkway in the most interesting parts of Těsný důl, 600 m in length. You can see the small cascades of the Černohorský potok along the way. The largest waterfall, up to 4 metres high, can be found at the end of the route, which is about 1.5 km long. The path over the other bridge is for more experienced hikers. Sturdy shoes and sports clothing are required.
In Janské Lázně, visit the unique Treetop Trail, opened in 2017, which is one of the longest in Europe and also brings you underground to an educative centre with a tree root system. The trail is more than 1,500 m long and will take you through a species-diverse forest, with numerous surprises and lessons awaiting you. You will be amazed by the view from the 45-metre high tower, which will let you have forest giants, some of which are over 150 years old, at your fingertips.
