The stage from Varnsdorf to Tolštejn castle is all about breathtaking views, interesting destinations, and elevation gains. The slow but constant climb will take you all the way to the top of Jedlová where there is a stone lookout tower waiting for you together with a great opportunity to try another local beer at the cottage at its foot. The ruin of the Tolštejn castle is a pleasant reward at the end of the stage. The same, however, goes for a glass of refreshing beer at the local castle restaurant.
