Bielsko-Biała is a city located at the foothill of Beskid Śląski and Beskid Mały. Its scenic location makes it one of the most beautiful places in Poland. Due to its interesting 19th century architecture (Art Nouveau and Eclectic), the city is called “Little Vienna.” Most of the mountain areas in Bielsko-Biała are located within two landscape parks: the Little Beskids Landscape Park and the Silesian Beskids Landscape Park, with two nature reserves and two ecological sites established within the area of the city. Bielsko-Biała is a centre of cultural, sports and entertainment events in Beskidy, with numerous cultural and sports events being held here. The Szyndzielnia Aerial Tramway (1028 m a.s.l.) The gondola aerial tramway offers an unforgettable trip to the peak of Szyndzielnia. The panorama of Bielsko-Biała may be seen both en route and from the peak of the mountain. The aerial tramway is ready for transporting disabled persons in wheelchairs, prams, bicycles, skis and other luggage. www.kolej-szyndzielnia.pl
The Dębowiec peak in Bielsko-Biała (536 m a.s.l.). The forest clearing below Dębowiec offers a splendid panoramic view of Bielsko-Biała and Magurka Wilkowicka. There is a mountain hostel at the upper edge of the forest clearing, one of the oldest of this kind in the Polish range of Beskidy. The mountain hostel is a meeting point for trails to Szyndzielnia, Klimczok, Błatnia and Bielsko-Biała. A comfortable road runs up to the hostel, which is why the Dębowiec forest clearing may be a good place for Sunday walks. There is a modern "Dębowiec" ski resort with 600-m long skiing route, a 4-seat aerial tramway line with the length of about 680 m, a moving walkway for children, a snow park with snowboarding facilities along the skiing route and a climbing wall (www.debowiec.beskidy.pl).
