Turn-by-turn directions

Follow Švejk to Lipnice

In Humpolec you will start on Horní náměstí square and go along Hradská Street straight on to the forest park below Orlík. There is a long ascent past the Jewish cemetery along a green nature trail called Březina. You continue to Orlik castle, which has stood above the town since the 14th century. From the car park below Orlík continue along the nature trail to Tři Jezírka. You follow the trail to the left and after less than 400 meters join the blue tourist sign track. After less than a kilometre you turn right on to an unmarked road, which is better accessible for bikes. After one kilometre, however, you will once again join the blue sign track and arrive at the crossroad swith cycle track 4155, where you turn right. You go through Orlovské lesy, which is linked to the beginnings of the Czechoslovak Scout Movement. Through the Nové Dvory crossroads, you continue along the cycle track through Loskoty, where the yellow tourist signs connect to your track. After less than one kilometre, cycle track 4155 turns right, however, you will stay on the yellow route from where you will ascend slightly to a Gothic castle founded by the Lords of Lichtenburk. One of the most massive noble castles, Lipnice, is the target of many Czech and foreign filmmakers. The place is linked to the writer Jaroslav Hašek, who gave life to his Švejk at the U České Koruny inn. The popular writer is buried in the local cemetery. In Lipnice you can also find the National Eavesdropping Memorial. You can see two rock monuments here, Mouth and Ear. Zlatý Voči is less than 2 kilometres from Lipnice. Not far from Lipnice there is also the Monument to Jaroslav Hašek, called Hlava XXII. From Lipnice you follow cycle tracks 19 and 1211, then you can expect a long downhill ride full of turns to the Kamenná Trouba pond. You turn left and leave both cycle tracks before you come to Kejžlice. From there goes cycle track 1214, which will lead you back through the villages of Budíkov and Světlice to Humpolec, where your trip began.
