Do you want to visit the Elbe Spring with a pram? Yes, it is possible and we will be happy to advise you on this route. The whole route is barrier-free and you can handle it with a pram.
We note in advance that the trip with a pram to the Source of the Elbe has more options.
You will take the cable car to Medvědín, where they will take your pram upstairs for free (price list and opening hours here). Follow the asphalt road in the direction of Horní Mísečky. From Jilemnická bouda there is a bus to Zlaté vrchší - timetable here. From Vrbatova bouda you continue along the blue markings - asphalt road (not along the red one) in the direction of Labská bouda. You pass the U Čtyř pánů signpost. If necessary, you can follow the blue road to Labská bouda and from Labská bouda continue to the source of the Elbe or go straight from the signpost U Čtyř pánů directly to the source of the Elbe - see our photo gallery below.
Length and time of the route: Horní nádraží Medvědína → bus stop Jilemnická bouda - Horní Mísečky = 1.8 km / 30 minutes - route map here. Vrbatova bouda → U Čtyř pánů → Spring Elbe = 3.1 km / 1h - route map here. To these times, add the cable car, bus and possible waiting with regard to timetables = about 1 hour. ATTENTION - with regard to trip alternatives, all times and distances are given only for the journey to the source of the Elbe! Calculate the way back to these times! On the way back, do not take a bus, but walk from Vrbatova bouda to Medvědín - map here. If you used the bus, you would have to get off from Mísečky back to Medvědín. Challenging and unnecessary.
Count on the fact that the trip will really take you all day. By this we mean a relaxing trip. It also depends very much on which alternative trip you choose.
more demanding - take the cable car to Medvědín and follow the yellow tourist route in the direction of Svinská louže, Šmídova vyhlídka (beautiful views) and further along Masaryk road to Vrbatova bouda - map HERE. In our photo gallery, see what the road through Svinské louže and to Šmíd's viewpoint looks like.
You will drive your car to Horní Mísečky, where there is a parking lot. You will walk 300 m to Jilemnická bouda, from where the bus goes to Zlaté hills - timetable here. From Vrbatova bouda, follow the blue markings on the asphalt road (not the red road) in the direction of Labská bouda. You pass the U Čtyř pánů signpost. If necessary, you can take the blue road to Labská bouda and from Labská bouda continue to the source of the Elbe or go straight from the U Čtyř pánů signpost directly to the source of the Elbe. Map of this route (Vrbatova bouda → U Čtyř pánů → Pramen Labe) - one way - you have it here.
A detailed description of the walking route to the Elbe Spring can be found here. However, the description refers to a walking tour, not a trip with a pram. Therefore, follow the above instructions and tips for a trip with a stroller.
- From Medvědín you can go directly to Vrbatova bouda along Masaryk Road, where only a bus runs, but you have to overcome an elevation gain of 358 m in the length of 4 km and a duration of about 2 hours - map here.
- If you go from Vrbatova bouda to the red one, you will see Pančavský waterfall and Ambrožova vyhlídka, but in several places you will carry a pram, it is a mountain trail - see our photo gallery.
- Before the trip, see what is current on the ridges of the Giant Mountains - webcams HERE and HERE
- When you return, check when the last bus and especially the cable car are running - back to Špindl.
