Boží dar and surroundings

Boží dar

Boží Dar is a significant winter sports resort. With its elevation of 1028 metres above sea level, it is the highest village in Central Europe. It is linked with the NOVAKO and NEKLID skiing centres, where you will find comprehensive services for skiers and snowboarders, the popular snow tubing and a number of attractions for children. You can reach the nearby ski centre at Klínovec, the highest mountain of the Ore Mountains (Krušné hory), with the ski bus. Klínovec is connected with the town of Jáchymov by a chairlift. Under the chairlift, there is a race track for mountain bikes.


Klínovec lies in the Karlovy Vary Region, about 3 km (2 miles) to the east of Boží Dar and 5 km (3 miles) north-east of Jáchymov. Another two towns are set in the valley to the north, between Klínovec and Fichtelberg: Loučná pod Klínovcem, the second smallest municipality with town status in the Czech Republic with merely 80 inhabitants, and Oberwiesenthal, a German spa town. Access to the peak is provided by a road from Boží Dar, tourist trails (marked red and yellow), or a chairlift from Jáchymov, running all year round. These days, Klínovec is a popular regional ski resort, featuring more than 10 kilometres (6 miles) of ski pistes, 35 kilometres (20 miles) of trails for cross-country skiing and a snowpark.


Neklid brought the first lift with covering cabine in the Czech mountains Neklid. They connected Klínovec with the town of Jáchymov with the help of almost 3 km of ski slopes, extended the ski slopes, improved Gastro facilities and focused on the best possible snow systems. They have the most retention tanks in the Czech Republic, so not only that they fight against drought, but thanks to 50,000 cubic meters of water retained by them, you will definitely not suffer from lack of snow. All this cost the Neklid area more than 600 million crowns.
