Erbenova vyhlídka

View over Ústí nad Labem and the Bohemian Central Mountains

At an altitude of 420 m above sea level, there is a tower with a covered platform named after Alexander Erben, the former chairman of the local mountaineers association. From here the view is somewhat restricted by trees, but it is still very beautiful. The view goes to the Milešovka (Milleschauer), Bukova hora, Teplice, along the ridge of the Ore Mountains and of course over a part of Ústí nad Labem.

There used to be two lookout towers on the site of the present Erbenová lookout tower. However, they were destroyed by the whims of the weather. Today, the lookout tower looks different than in 1889, when its first version was ceremonially unveiled. Originally, the tower had only a stone foundation, which was supplemented by a wooden structure covered with shingles. Ten years later, however, during the storm, this part fell and was rebuilt in 1903. Finally a lightning bolt destroyed the stone foundation in 1910. The tower was not restored until 1933, when it was rebuilt by the mountaineers association "Mittel- und Erzgebirgsverein in Aussig". This time it was built entirely of stone and has been preserved until today. In 2006 the observation tower was completely reconstructed and raised from the original eight metres to 15 metres.

The easiest way is to go to Dobětice (part of Ústí) by trolleybus or car to the beginning or end of the prefabricated housing estate and then follow the yellow or green marked path up the hill.
