Tips

  • WuGI

    The Doost (also: Dost) is a relatively small but very impressive nature reserve near Weiden i. d. Upper Palatinate. His countless roundish granite blocks were probably not transported by a glacial stream here, but emerged on the spot by weathering and grinding. The wooded ravine through which the small stream Girnitz, sometimes invisible because of the piled up blocks, flows through, is in superstition the place of the devil and the underworld.

    You are here: Home> Experience> Nature> Natural highlightsDoostMeer nature reserve made of stone blocksIn the vicinity of Floß-Diepoltsreuth is a little hidden, between the camping site Gollwitzerweiher and Ritzlersreuth, the sea of rocks of the nature reserve "Doost".As early as 1937, the Doost, which is only 10.73 hectares in size and lying a little hidden, is around
    Located 10 km northeast of Weiden in the municipality of Floß near Diepoldsreuth, it was the first nature reserve in the Upper Palatinate to be placed under protection.
    Because of its idyllic location and the mighty granite blocks in the course of the Girnitzbächlein and on the flat valley slopes, it is a popular excursion destination, especially for hikers and families. Incidentally, the "stone block sea" there was exposed by the Girnitz through erosion processes and not - as with mountain streams - transported down into the valley by the force of the flowing water from higher areas.The approximately 750 m long section of the Girnitzbach, which flows through the sea of massive, rounded granite blocks, can be reached via several hiking trails from Neustadt / WN, from pastures or from raft. The starting point for an excursion can also be the villages of Wilchenreuth and Diepoldsreuth (where you can stop for refreshments) or the Gollwitzerhof (with a campsite and swimming pond).

    Unfortunately, some time ago, notice boards were attached to the most important rocks with history. Unfortunately changes a lot ...
