Výletní plavby parníkem

One of the most beautiful views of Lipno is from the deck of a cruise ship, say many visitors to the dam.
Shipping here is operated by ROSENBERGER – Lipno – Line s.r.o., which has three large cruise ships at its disposal: ADALBERT STIFTER, VLTAVA and SMETANA.

The timetable and possible reservations can be found at
Guests of our hotel can use the option of purchasing cruise tickets directly at the hotel reception.

The Adalbert Stifter boat is the larger and newer one that has been sailing in Lipno since 2012. In the sailing season, i.e. from mid-April to the end of October, Adalbert Stifter mostly sails on the southern half of the lake, around Lipno nad Vltavou, Frymburk and Dolní Vltavice. It provides boat transport as well as very popular cruises, including evening cruises with a sunset program. During the summer holidays, the ship can sometimes depart four times a day from the port of Lipno nad Vltavou, Frymburk and Dolní Vltavice. On board the ship, you can have refreshments in the ship’s bar and, if you wish, you can experience, for example, a cruise with a children’s program or with dance music.

The second ship is the Vltava, which has been carrying passengers since 1959, i.e. almost since the dam reservoir was filled. During the holidays, they transport tourists and cyclists on routes across the whole of Lipno. Here, too, you can choose your favorite cruise from the timetable. You can also have a light refreshment on the Vltava boat during the cruise and you will learn interesting facts about the places you are sailing past.

Third in the order is the cruise ship Smetana, named after the composer Bedřich Smetana. This ship with a large observation deck sails in the season mainly between Horní Plana, Černa v Pošumaví and Dolní Vltavičí. You can also board the Smetana boat with your bicycle and possibly liven up your trip around the dam. The ship’s bar with drinks and small snacks is a matter of course, as is the relaxed crew and sometimes live music on board.

Hopdarium, Lipno nad Vltavou 86,382 78 Lipno nad Vltavou


is an exhibition of live tropical butterflies, where visitors walk directly in the space between flying butterflies. The spaces are rendered in the environment of a fantasy world.

Butterflies are native to the tropical regions of Southeast Asia, South Africa, Central and South America. The most interesting species include, for example, Morpho peleides, which impresses not only with its wingspan, which can reach up to 20 cm, but especially with its blue color, which is very rare in nature. It is also very interesting to observe the camouflage of butterflies, which they use to protect themselves from predators. For example, the Kallima species looks like a withered leaf. Caligo, on the other hand, has a perfect rendition of an owl’s eye, which he uses to intimidate his enemies.

The exhibition also includes a hatchery, where visitors can watch the birth of new butterflies.
