In the Cínovec region you can immediately visit several moorlands of the upland type that can be found at between 850 and 880 m above sea level and that have an airspace of approx. 3 mil. m3 of humolite. While people had previously drained these moorlands, today they rather endeavour to bring water to these areas once again. You can find the Cínovec moorland the nature preserve to the west of Cínovec, where it joins the Georgenfeld bog on the German side of the border. Today the largely unknown moorland U Jezera can be found about 2 km to the west in the flat trough at the Northeast base of Pramenáč. It has dimensions of approx. 9 ha, airspace of 1.67 mil m3 and verified thickness of over 6 metres. Until World War II it was the only bog used for the baleological spa of Teplice.
Within the moorlands pine scrub grows, one of the oldest plants of this section of the Ore Mountains and two types of birch – downy and dwarf. Here there is also the protected carnivorous plant the round-leafed sundew. The other protected plants you can admire here include Marsh Labrador tea, Hare's-tail Cottongrass, and Common Cottongrass. In outlying regions of the nature preserve the critically endangered Heath Spotted Orchid grows. Among birds you can spot the protected Black Stork in the moorlands, among other species, which flies into this space for food, or the Common Raven.
The moorland on the Saxon side of the border is called the Georgenfelder Hochmoor. It is one of few accessible mountain moorlands and admission is charged. The path to its leads from the border town of Zinnwald-Georgenfeld and allows you to pass through a 1200 metre long rolling training path which leads through the most interesting parts of the moorland. Unlike the Georgenfeld mountain moorland on the German side, the Cínovec moorlands and the moorland U Jezera have been left in their natural state and tourists and mountain visitors can admire the rough and melancholy beauty of the open Ore Mountain terrain. You can reach the moorlands via a mountain highway leading from Cínovec to Nové Město and along the short vertical trails. We recommend either views from the surrounding hunter's blinds or studying detailed aerial maps on the internet. These then reveal the moorland meadows and a series of small lakes.
