The only stone lookout tower in the Krkonoše is situated on the top of Mount Žalý.

The lookout tower is 18 metres high. It was built in 1892 on order by Earl Jan Harrach. The tower is, in fact, the third structure at this place: the first one was wooden, while the second was made of metal yet its technical condition was unsatisfactory.

The tower is open in good weather. Because of its locality - the forward crotch of Mount Žalý- and relatively high elevation (1019 metres above sea level), its top offers an unlimited circular vista, one of the best in Bohemia. Not only can you see the Krkonoše and the wide surrounding area: in good weather, you may identify the towers in Prague as well.

Access: follow the red trail named Bucharova Cesta from Jilemnice to Horní Mísečky, or the yellow trail from Vrchlabí or an easy path from Benecko.

During the winter or summer season, you can go by funicular.
