Písek offers several possibilities for active relaxation. Near the Otava River are lots of sports facilities – a swimming pool, a winter stadium, tennis courts, modern football pitches and an athletics stadium or one of the biggest climbing centres in the Czech Republic. Your children can have a good time in many attractive playgrounds or in a parkour training field.

There are many marked hiking and cycling trails going through Písek. The KČT information column is located on the Velké Square. It will lead you, among other things, to a 12-kilometer town cirkle tour. The starting point of the cycling routes is the right bank of the Otava near the Stone Bridge. We can recommend the "Around Písek" circuit marked 75 km marked by a special logo – a symbol of a cyclist in a blue field.

The starting point for hiking trails into suburban forests are two places – U Vodáka below Písecké hory and U Smetáka under the Hradiště hill. There are also several nature trails and two so-called sports trails.
