    The view is nice. You have to look for the entrance to the doctor's cave, but it's worth it - definitely visit !!!

    The doctor's cave is about 50 meters long, its entrance measures about five times three meters. The cave was greatly changed after its discovery by development work. There are still remains of the original stalactite jewelery and some sinter basins.In the cave cadastre Franconian Alb (HFA) is the doctor's cave as C 62 and by the Bavarian State Office for the Preservation of Monuments as Bodendenkmal D-4-6133-0114 registered.

    With the new (2012 newly built) 12 m high observation tower, the Hohe Kreuz is the highest point of the "hollow mountain" (522 + 12 m) - equaling the eagle stone in height -> the view extends over 270 ° from Wiesenttal with the Neideck, over the Aufseßal, to the Fichtelgebirge to the Ochsenkopf, in the east to the Oberpfälzer Land.
