Hiking or Golfing

If the thought of a spa treatment doesn't appeal, you can take a relaxing walk through the woods. The surrounding forest, Slavkovský les (Slavkov Forest), has about 70km (43 miles) of marked footpaths and trails through the gentle hills that abound in the area.

If you're a die-hard golfer or just looking for a little exercise, the Royal Golf Club of Mariánské Lázne (tel. 354-624-300; www.golfml.cz), a 6,135-yard, par-72 championship course, lies on the edge of town. The club takes pay-as-you-play golfers, with a fully equipped pro shop that rents clubs. Greens fees are 1,500Kc to 1,700Kc and club rental is 500Kc. Reservations are recommended on weekends.
