Hostel Skippy Guesthouse...a traveler's retreat


 Leisure Activities



 To get the most out of your stay in Český Krumlov we recommend that you plan to stick around for more than a glance.  Many of the leisure activities in and around town offer great ways to enjoy your travels without digging deep into your pockets (or not at all). We know from our own experience that traveling can be a hard job that wears you out. This is a great town to give yourself a break, gather your thoughts, let your experiences settle, and relax before carrying on.   Keep in mind that this is a small medieval town with a river running through it and surrounded by forests. Here is a list of some of the options to consider when planning the length of your stay.





  • Wander around aimlessly, have a picnic, draw, write, read a book.
  • Hiking, walking or running in the surrounding forest or to nearby villages.
  • Cycling: we can lend you a map and show you great routes to enjoy the surrounding area, nature, villages, ruins and more. 
  • Visiting the Český Krumlov Castle/Galleries/Tower
  • Visiting Museums/Galleries
  • Tennis on clay courts (150kc per hour)
  • Indoor swimming pool (50kc 90 min.)
  • Horse Riding in the forest with The Slupenec Horesriding Club.
  • Swimming in the river
  • Day trips to Šumava National Forest (very cheap by bus or train)
  • Day trips to Beautiful Lipno Lake for fishing/swimming/sunbathing
  • Day trips to Zláta Koruna Monastery (8 min. by train, 15 min. by bus,  or a lovely 8k bike ride through beautiful country roads) 
  • Rafting or Canoeing on the Vltava river... raft and canoe rentals are available in town.
