> hikes around the Riesengebirge (and I don't know the Czech names of all of
> these former German areas). The original names come into my mind rather
> quickly, like the trail to the Hoffmannsbaude and Schneekoppe on a
> trail-net
> of many many miles. You felt like walking in Ruebezahl's footsteps. I am
> sure that they must have made this then VERY touristy area attractive now

> "Ruebezahl" came first and Krkonos second or vice versa. Another most
> romantic place I remember was the Spindlermühle on the foot of the
> Schwarzenberg. If anyone visits Bohemia, this romantically beautiful area
> is well worth a visit! I am enclosing a web link where you can find 40
> photographs of the area and except for a few more modern buildings it has
> changed little from what I remember. And if you want to hear the melody
> of the Riesengebirgslied, that is here also attached. You need a Real
