Get to know the famous, but also less known Renaissance sights in the Lužické Mountains.

There is no better starting point than Grabštejn and its surroundings. Grabštejn boasts not only a castle and chateau situated between Liberec and Saská Žitava, on the northern slopes of Ještěd, but also stunning and romantic settings. It takes only a matter of minutes to leave history and find yourself out in the wild or near water. You can travel on foot, by train, car or ride your bike.
