At an altitude of 1 492 m above sea level, Praděd is Moravia’s highest peak. This mountain can surprise you with its harsh climate since its average annual temperature is only 0.9 °C. There is a 145-metre-tall transmitter on the peak: it is the highest, albeit artificial, point in the Czech Republic. Until 1959 a stone lookout tower stood here. We recommend starting out the trip to Praděd from Karlova Studánka, from where you can go foot or take the shuttle to the Ovčárna chalet. Although the hike will not be entirely easy, the view from the top is worth it. When visibility is good, you will be able to see the Praděd and Keprník highlands, the cities of Jeseník and Bruntál, Kralický Sněžník and under excellent conditions, you will be faced with a view of the Krkonoše and Vysoké Tatry mountain ranges.

On the ridge of Hrubý Jeseník is a rock formation at an altitude of 1 438 m above sea level. The rocks are composed of slate and gneiss; therefore, they are not very resistant. Unfortunately, they are not open to the public because rare flora, especially endemic shrubs, are found here. That's why they were included in the list of nature reserves and are incorporated into the Praděd State Nature Reserve. This location is also significant from a historical point of view as witchcraft sabbaths were said to have taken place here in the 17th century and is entwined with a great deal of stories. The rocks are located near the Ovčárna chalet, which is why you can stop here along your trip to Praděd.
