Broumov's walls hide many magical places that are worth visiting in every season.

Several ravines traverse the rock massif, usually from west to east. The most famous is the Kovářova ravine - a marked tourist path leads through it from Police n. M. to Broumov via Hvězda. Numerous rock mushrooms in the area of Slavné and Božanovské Špičák are an example of the so-called selective weathering of sandstone rocks.

The most interesting parts of the Broumovské walls are accessible thanks to a dense network of marked hiking trails, which allow relatively comfortable passage through otherwise difficult terrain. Hvězda is an important crossroads of tourist routes.
