    The Döbraberg is with 794 meters the highest mountain in the Franconian Forest. At its summit is a radar station of the Bundeswehr, the observation tower Prinz-Luitpold-tower of the Frankenwaldverein e. V. and various seating groups.

    From the summit, a short detour to the old ski downhill route to the mountain rescue hut of the Bergwachtbereitschaft Schwarzenbach a.Wald with a magnificent view is worthwhile. The cottage is open on Sundays and public holidays and open to everyone.

    The "trademark" of the Döbraberg is the bright dome of the radar station of the Bundeswehr. The station, formerly operated by the US Air Force, gives the mountain a distinctive look and is visible from afar. The area around the dome is restricted area and must not be entered. From the Prinz-Luitpold-Turm on the Döbraberg, there is a wonderful all-round view over the Franconian Forest into the Fichtelgebirge, the Thuringian Forest, the Erzgebirge and the Coburger Land. Here meet a variety of trails, including the new long-distance hiking trail Frankenwald Steig, the Frankenweg (a quality trail Wanderbares Germany), the Frankenwald Steigla, Schwarzenbacher views, the Frankenwald Steigla, Zum alten Grenzstein, the Wasserscheidenweg, the Prinz-Luitpold-Weg and numerous local hiking trails.

    The highest in the Franconian Forest ... and all around a variety of great hiking tours. Highly recommended the "FrankenwaldSteigla"! Also the Frankenweg or the FrankenwaldSteig lead over the Döbraberg.
