Must-see of every mountain lover. Unfortunetly, the legendary disc-restaurant on Polish side is closed, so remember to have your own food and drink when going there on foot! It's also possible to get there by cableway from the Czeh side, but it tastes the best after half-day trekking. Views are breathtaking, but it's always cold and windy here ;)

If you are going to Sniezka you will take the ski lift and walk to Kope. My advice is to continue your climb to Sniezka and return to Kope for something to eat. The walk to Kope is pleasant and easy. The further climb to Sniezka was quite severe and a little dangerous in the snow and ice. Be careful... More

I have been to Sniezka some time ago. This time I came in October and could not see any nice views because of fog. But it was a very good experience to walk and climb and win with snow, fog and cold. I was very disappointed when I discovered that the restaurant at the top was closed. Must visit if... More

Sniezka again and again beautiful views and great walk. During weekends and holidays the road up and down can be crowded but if you have power, you can choose less popular roads.

I've been to Sniezka few times, last time it was 3 years ago and when you reach the top you had small restaurant up there serving food, drinks etc. This time they decided to shut this part and when you walk in there is a man serving hod dogs, small shop which sells very limited drinks. Three years ago you... More

If You are in Poland go there. Beautiful landscapes on route to the top. Great place to See the majesty of polish-czech mountains :) It takes about 6 hours to go to the top and Come down including 30 minutes break.

We walked from Karpacz using the trail from Wang Church. There were good pitstops on the way for food and drink. It was a lovely sunny day and we were rewarded with great views. It took 8 hours return as my 9 year old stopped a lot. You should do it in less.

We wasted a lot of time waiting in a queue instead of climbing up. Now I would rather choose to go up the hill and use the lift while going down (it wasn't crowded at all). Oh, and of course, you can use the lift on the Czech side, not in Poland. The view is incredible!

It is possible to walk all the way from the village of Karpacz, you can also choose the chair lift from Karpacz to Kopa and walk from there.

Definately worth doing when you are in Poland or Czech Rep. Beautiful vews all the way to the top. Note that this trail is overcrowded in weekends and holidays.
