Hradčany Information Centre

The Information Centre of the Mimoň division of Vojenské lesy a statky ČR, s.p. is located in Ralsko – Hradčany, on the road linking Doksy and Mimoň. The Information Centre is situated in the centre of the former Ralsko military training area, a picturesque landscape interwoven with many ponds and natural reservoirs, remarkable sandstone formations and romantic secluded places, shrouded in the mystery of the forbidden territory, extending between the Ralsko (696 m), Velký Bezděz (603 m) and Malý Bezděz (578 m) hills, which are noticeable natural features dominating the local region.

The Information Centre’s exhibition focuses on the history of the former Ralsko military training area, as well as on the history and present of forestry, gamekeeping, natural conditions, geological attractions, flora and fauna, nature conservation and the possibilities for tourism and recreation in this area.

Thanks to its location, the Information Centre is a good starting point for both cyclists and hikers. There are three tourist circuits starting directly at the Information Centre, 3.5 km long, 8.5 km long and 16 km long, leading to the surrounding pine forests, ponds and sandstone rocks. The shortest circuit is marked as the Jeřáb (Crane) nature trail with eight information boards.

The area of ​​the former Ralsko military training area is aptly referred to as a “cycling paradise”. The physically undemanding terrain is interwoven with many narrow roads mostly with an asphalt surface which used to be used by the training troops. Barriers are placed on most forest roads, which helps to keep cyclists passing through the area safe. In the summer months, exploration of the countryside on a bicycle or on foot can be even more pleasant if you take a swim in the Hradčany Pond, which is located near the Information Centre.
