Výlet na Šibeniční Vrch
Elbow was, in ancient times, a regional execution city. On top of the castle stands Šibeniční Vrch. There is a torso of a stone building of the former execution site with a circular ground plan of 4.8 m. The gallows is thanks to the natural character of the surroundings very impressive and worth a trip, it is hard to find a place with a similar genius loci. Only the most important thing is missing – the swinging loop.
On the slopes above the right bank of the Ohre river there are rocky outlooks on the Goethe Trail – a circular path winding over the town, approximately 50 m high above the road that connects Sokolov, Loket and Horni Slavkov.
