Krásný Les (German: Schönwald) is a village in the Karlovy Vary District, Karlovy Vary Region, of the Czech Republic.

Krásný Les lies on the southern edge of the Ore Mountains at the feet of the mountain Klínovec. Prior to 1945, the northern Bohemian village was mostly populated by Germans. As a result of World War II, the Germans were expelled and replaced with Czechs.
