This cycling route runs through the Czech-Polish border region and connects Mohelnice, Šumperk and Jeseník with the Polish towns of Nysa and Otmuchow. Two stops along the route are located in Mírov and in Mohelnice and they are devoted to the personality of Alois Lautner, convicted of "acting in the name of Satan" during the macabre witch hunt of the 17th century. There are two memorial tablets in Mohelnice - at the site of Lautner's burning in 1685 and at the so-called Witches' House where he was jailed and tortured.
