In addition to visiting romantic wooden lookouts, arbours and resting areas in the spa woods surrounding Karlovy Vary, you may also explore the newly opened themed trail with observation bridges and footpaths.

The complex with the themed nature trail was built as a part of the "Nature Unites – St. Linhart" project, which was funded from the Cross-Border Cooperation Programme Objective 3 Czech Republic – Free State of Bavaria 2007 – 2013.

The building also serves as an information and visitor centre with a gallery. At present, a set of photographs mapping the course of the renovation and construction of the complex is displayed in the gallery.

The game preserve covers an area of 70 hectares and it is divided into three parts. You may watch the sika deer in the first part by Saint Linhart, fallow deer in the central part, and wild boar in the third part. A 5-kilometre long nature trail leads through the preserve and along its route, you will find information boards with interesting fact about the fauna and flora living in the surrounding woods.
