Cultural-events lovers head to Šumperk famous for its folklore and blues festivals. For tourists who love mountains both in summer and winter there are the peaks of Hrubý Jeseník. The town of Šumperk, the centre of the region, was founded before 1278 and upgraded to a chartered royal town in 1562. From the second half of the 17th century, this was the only place in Central Europe where noted upholstery fabrics were produced, the manufacturing process of which was kept a strict secret. During the 19th century it became a significant textile centre with eleven spinning mills and eleven silk factories. This period is still recalled by magnificent buildings that gave the town its nickname of "Little Vienna".

Among significant tourist attractions there are Velké Losiny in the valley Desná with a beautiful Renaissance chateau, a unique hand paper-mill and one of the oldest thermal spas in Moravia. Velké Losiny and Šumperk came too to unwanted attention as the centre of the most mass witch trials in the Czech lands. Another small spa can be found in Bludov.

A new tourist and sport centre is growing in Loučná nad Desnou. The pumped storage hydro plant Dlouhé Stráně is a much admired monumental ediface. The nearby saddle "Červenohorské sedlo" is a winter-sport resort and a starting point of many hiking trials to Hrubý Jeseník. Among other ski resorts there are Přemyslov and Klepáčov. From Skřítek, the popular stopping-off place on the way from Šumperk to Bruntál, it is possible to reach the highest peak of the Jeseníky Mountains, Praděd.
