This particular stage of the Beer Trail will reward you not only with stunning views but also with fascinating gems of traditional folk architecture coupled with beautiful monuments of religious origins. Your journey will begin with a hike to the top of Hvozd mountain which, apart from breathtaking views, offers an opportunity to enjoy a glass of ice-cold beer in the mountain hut at the top. The stage then continues to Cvikov, leading you through Mařenice with full of amazing Upper Lusatian houses and the recently renovated church of St. Mary Magdalene, Trávník with Knespel’s lookout point offering a magical view of Hvozd, and finally through Kalvárie (Calvary) all the way to Cvikov, brewery.
