Mountain Biking Highlight
The ruin Weißenstein stands on the 863.5 m above sea level. NHN high white stone in the stone forest between Waldershof and Erbendorf in the northern Upper Palatinate. Although the Kleinburg has historically never played a major role, it is unique in its location in the middle of a bizarre stone formation. In 1995, hardly more than the keep on a high rock cliff and two collapse-prone walls about four meters high were recognizable. Other walls were possibly recognizable in the form of wall-like elevations. The company Steinwaldia Pullenreuth e. V. restored the remaining parts of the building between 1996 and 2000 with considerable expenditure of time and money and ensured the preservation of the cultural and historical monument. In an information pavilion, the hiker receives information about the history of the Weissenstein and the refurbishment of the facilities. The castle ruin Weißenstein is a magnet for hikers, but also a backdrop for concerts, theater performances and other cultural events.

Great round with beautiful sights, great views, stop with delicious blueberry cake, finally a cool dip in the pond. Perfect. Also feasible with athletic children. Only for the singletrack you should have the wheel under control. The trail is but umfahrbar. All in all, top and nice area.

In the middle of the forest rises an imposing castle ruin, which is to be explored. However, one should have no fear of heights at the wooden steps to the tower, and a little spirit of adventure in the height. If not, the view from the middle is already wonderful, without the thrill of the slightly rotten steps :-)
