Bečov nad Teplou
Paul Bäumer, one of cinema’s best known soldiers, was called up to barracks from Bečov nad Teplou. Its train station attracted the makers of the film All Quiet on the Western Front at the end of the 1970s.
Bečov nad Teplou’s train station has maintained its historical atmosphere to this day and has changed little. It is well worth visiting and is by no means the only town's attraction. The local castle, which towers above the town, is home to a unique item. The reliquary of Saint Maur is one of the most valuable historic objects in the Czech Republic. What’s more, there is a dramatic, thriller-like story of disappearance and being rediscovery behind it – don’t miss it.
Afterwards, why not take a walk to Gallows Hill? Along the educational trail that leads there, less than a kilometre in length, you will discover fascinating facts about how hangings were carried out. Meanwhile, a climb up Golden Hill (home to a radio tower) will be rewarded with a wonderful view of the town. A visit to the museum of historical motorcycles and toys will provide the perfect conclusion for visitors big and small.
