Ski holidays Karpacz – Popular winter sports centre at Sniezka Mountain!

Karpacz

Karpacz lies at an altitude between 480 and 885 m in south-western Poland, near the border of the Czech Republic, where the Sniezka Mountain takes up residence (1,602 m). This Lower Silesian city is a popular winter sports resort and stands out as the most important tourism centre of the Giant Mountains on the Polish side. Karpacz is significant for many reasons, one of which being that it is said to be the home of the well-known mountain spirit, Rübezahl. The author Theodor Fontane is also said to have been inspired by the region to write literary pieces whilst enjoying his summer retreat there.

Karpacz is especially captivating when blanketed in snow, creating an idyllic, unique landscape that draws in winter hikers and skiers alike. The rich history of tourism in Karpacz, particularly during and after the National Socialism movement, can be seen and heard at the Museum for Sports and Tourism in resort, of which is to be found in a charming, historical wooden house. An additional architectural attraction is the Wang Stave Church in the resort's district of Brückenberg. The church displays several pointed gables and is constructed out of Norwegian pine wood, save the stone church steeple.

Picturesquely embedded between Sniezka Mountain and the Karkonoski National Park, Karpacz is the perfect little spot for a recuperative winter holiday.

Giant Mountains

The Giant Mountains are located directly on the border between Poland the Czech Republic, it's name results from the massive visual presence in the landscape. Although only one third of the mountains belong to Poland, this part of the massif is home to the highest and most popular peak, the Śnieżka (German: Schneekoppe, 1,602 m altitude). Typical landscape features are rocky ridges and wonderful mountain lakes. For centuries the Giant Mountains have been a tourist magnet for travellers all over the world. Today most of the massif is declared as a national park. The winter sports centres in the Giant Mountains offer everything it needs for a good ski holiday: well-prepared pistes, modern lift systems and seemingly endless cross-country trails on great high plateaus.
