This is a more demanding stage of the Beer Trails which will see you beat an elevation gain of 500 metres. First, you will descend sharply from Tolštejn to the valley of the village Lesná, only to climb back up to Ptačinec. You are at the border with Germany now and have two options how to proceed – either beat the serpentines to Luž mountain from the Czech side or take it easy and get there from the German side. After that, the stage descends again all the way to the border in Waltersdorf, continuing to Dolní Světlá with many accommodation options including guest houses and private quarters. Afterwards, you will continue along the red marked trail through the forest to Krompach, Valy. Here you will have an opportunity to enjoy the many tastes and colours of Falkenštejn beer at the Hvozd farm.
