Boží Dar (1028 m above sea level) is one of the most significant winter sports centres in the Czech Republic, situated near to the state border with Germany. The German side is easy to access using the border crossing or various tourist crossings. Neighbouring villages on the German side are also significant sporting and cultural centres - Kurort Oberwiesenthal and Breitenbrunn. Especially prepared cross-country skiing reaching lengths of approximately 70 km on the Czech territory and a further 50 km on the German territory in the immediate surroundings of the village have recently become very popular. German cross-country skiing routes can be visited on skis using the tourist border trail.
Traditionally, it is those routes that can be recommended to beginners, families with children, and also for more advanced skiers, that are very popular. Parts of the routes are directly connected to the village, so they are very comfortable to access. At the village itself and in the adjacent ski resorts there are 18 ski lifts and 4 chairlifts on the Czech and German sides of the border. Services are provided directly in the village by three ski schools and by several hire shops lending downhill and cross-country skiing equipment.
In the village and its surroundings a countless number of accommodation, catering and refreshment facilities are available. Actual information including pictures, is available at www.bozidar.cz
