 Jeseník – A town called “The Pearl of Jeseník Area” for it is situated in a beautiful nature. Among the interesting architecture is an originally renaissance town hall from 17th century and originally gothic church from 1418.
 Čertovy kameny – The rock formation of Čertovy kameny consists of several rock walls of granite pegmatite.

 Zlatý Chlum – Hill Zlatý Chlum rises above the town of Jeseník and dominates the area of Jeseník. A stone 26-meter-high lookout tower has been standing on the top since 1899. After climbing 145 steps you will have a beautiful view of the Rychlebské Mountains, Hrubý Jeseník, Králický Sněžník, Biskupská hora and the Polish plain. In good weather, the lookout tower can be seen directly from the town of Jeseník, and if there is a flag above it, it is open.
