Interesting facts Educational trail of military history Králíky
The uniqueness of this nature trail lies in the Röchling anti-concrete missiles, which were a secret weapon of the Third Reich. Even today, we find them buried in the walls of the artillery cabin K-S 11 in the fortress Hůrka.
Information boards are located along the entire route and can be boarded at all museums and on the Great Square in Králíky. The aim of this route was to connect the center of Králíky with three military museums, which are located on the northern edge of the city, as well as with other localities that are somehow connected to military history.
The nature trail does not have a circular character, but is composed of a secondary and main circuit, various branches and jumpers. You can leave the Municipal Museum Králíky, which is located on the aforementioned Great Square, and from where the route also leads to Kralický Sněžník and other places.
