Tips

  • Vogtland

    Arrived on the Geisingberg (824 meters), a cozy stop awaits you in the Bergbaude and the Luisenturm. There is a viewing platform at a height of 18 meters, which you can reach via a spiral staircase with 88 steps. Your efforts will be rewarded with a breathtaking panoramic view from which you can already see your next destination - Altenberg.

    "At the beginning of the 19th century there were pavilions on the summit that were used by the Saxon kings, especially King Anton, for hunting purposes. After initial attempts to cater for the mountain's guests had failed, Carl Mutze from Geising took the initiative and erected an observation scaffold and a log cabin around a maple tree on the summit. This is exactly where the 18-meter-high Louisenturm was opened on September 27, 1891, with 88 steps still leading to its observation platform. It was named after the fiancée of the future king Friedrich August III of Saxony, Princess Louise.
    In 1898 an accommodation house was built next to it, which was demolished again in 1906 and replaced by a mountain hut built on solid ground. This was initially only managed during the summer season and still invites you to visit today. "Wikipedia - Geisingberg

    Always worthwhile to come up here. A stop in the Baude must be easy. Very nice innkeeper couple.

    Quaint 18m high tower with a great view of the Ore Mountains.
    (Entry 1 €)
    A visit to the Bergbaude Geisingberg is highly recommended (food tastes good and friendly staff)

    Very nice view, but the tower is not in the best condition.
    The steps are sometimes wobbly and you can only see residues of the head-protecting cushions.
