We recently set out on a trip to Mikulov and as devoted hikers we could not miss visiting the local tourist landmarks. The Stations of the Cross leading up to the Holy Hill in Mikulov is one of the first pilgrimage sites in southern Moravia and one of the oldest ways in Czechia. Originally called Tanzberg, the hill was inhabited by old Slavonic priestesses who harnessed its powerful energy for healing local people and the land. Its powerful, even mystical nature can still be felt today. While the Stations of the Cross hike is quite strenuous, the view opening beyond the stone path makes it all worth it. The chapel at the top of the hill is usually open on weekends, but to avoid tourist crowds we decided to visit the Holy Hill during the week. The weather was on our side, so we could see far beyond the border. The children most enjoyed spotting all the lizards and slow worms along the way.
As we were visiting Mikulov with children on our way to the Austrian Familypark, we were looking for accommodation that would satisfy both parents and children alike. We decided to go with the Hotel Galant Mikulov, which turned out to be ideal for families. An obvious advantage of the hotel, located directly below the Holy Hill, is its spacious wellness centre with a wide choice of procedures and rooftop pool. Directly from the swimming pool and roof terrace with its whirlpools and relaxation zone, you can see the castle, the chapel on top of the Holy Hill and the Goat Tower. It was truly a wonderful experience that we’re glad to have enjoyed.
If you are looking for a place to host a conference or company meeting in the area of Mikulov, the Hotel Galant is an ideal choice. The hotel complex expands over more than 8000 m2 and contains a modern congress centre. The hotel offers 125 fully equipped rooms, a restaurant serving Czech dishes from regional produce and if you feel like switching from their great wine to a cold brew, we highly recommend trying a beer right from the Galant brewery. The brewing is carried out right in the hotel's brewery restaurant. The fermentation and maturation processes take place in the cellar of the restaurant in chilled, stainless steel tanks. As you will soon come to know, no two cellars are quite the same in Southern Moravia. Tours of the brewery at the Hotel Galant in Mikulov can be booked for groups of 15 persons and more. Of course, you should not miss a visit to the wine cellar and wine bar of the Hotel Galant, where you can enjoy dulcimer music on select Saturday evenings.
From beginning to end, a stay at the Hotel Galant in Mikulov is a wonderful experience. Whether you are travelling in a pair, with your family or work colleagues, stop by the hotel Galant Mikulov, if at least for one night. You will certainly enjoy everything it has to offer, as did we.
