The Šámal Chalet, originally the Clam-Gallas hunting lodge, was used by Dr Přemysl Šámal, the Chancellor to President T. G. Masaryk, during the First Republic. The interior was lined with larch and the suite and bathroom were appointed to look identical to those in the Czernin Palace. Nowadays, the chalet serves all hikers and its restaurant is a traditional place which locals like to visit and visitors to the Jizera Mountains regularly return to. It has a long tradition of home cooking and the motto of “home cooking just like mother’s” is no advertising slogan, but simply the truth.
