Highline Festival Český Krumlov

Český Krumlov invites you to the 1st year of a unique international festival of highline and slackliners.

In 2021, modern rope walkers, young men walking the "line", introduced themselves above our heads on elastic straps stretched high above the roofs of houses in the city centre for the first time over the historic centre of Krumlov. This year, in cooperation with the city, they decided to start a new tradition in the form of a highline festival, which will be attended by about 50 competitors from six countries - the Czech Republic, Slovakia, Germany, Austria, Poland and Italy. For four days, you will have the opportunity to experience the city in a new atmosphere and witness breathtaking performances. Above the historical centre of the city will be installed 10 high-rise lines with a length of 25 to 235 metres, connected to, among other things, the château, the Regional Museum, the Art School and the city theatre. A rich accompanying programme is planned.
