The town hall from 1581 (baroquized in 1735), the neo gothic Municipal Church from 1888 as well as several old arcade houses are worth mentioning. Vrchlabí is the starting point of the Elbe street to Špindlerův Mlýn, the frequently visited tourist centre in the Bohemian part of the Giant Mountains from where you can take several marked paths leading to the mountains.

Josefov is situated 20 km to the north of Hradec Králové´s city centre.
