Boubín Lookout Tower

Lookout tower above the forest overlooking the Šumava panorama.

The Boubín Lookout Tower is located in the protected area of the Boubín Forest at an altitude of 1362 m. The building material was transported here by horse, cable car and even by hand. Above the 109 steps, tourists can enjoy views of Libín, Kleť, Plechý, Stožec and Poledník etc. Hluboká nad Vltavou, Temelín, Brdy or the peaks of the Alps can also be seen on the horizon.

Although the mountain of Boubín itself is not the highest mountain in the Šumava Mountains, if you climb the 21-meter-high tower, you will find yourself 5 meters above the top of the highest mountain in Šumava, which is Plechý (1378).
