    A beautiful hiking and mountain bike destination, with a beautiful view. The nearby Wackelstein is only a few hundred meters away. The ruin Hirschstein also offers a nice challenge for climbers. The ascent on the rock is provided with mounted climbing eyelets to secure.

    On the north route between the station Kirchenlamitz-Ost and the Kornberg summit lies the ruins of the rock castle Hirschstein (744 m above sea level). It was the site of a former castle, but of which only a few sparse remains can be seen.
    The Hirschstein Castle, which was originally one of the oldest in the Fichtelgebirge, is said to have belonged to Hirzberg "zen Herschenstein" already in 1206 Rüdiger and Utzo. The castle was destroyed in the middle of the 14th century and never rebuilt.

    Ruin Hirschstein 1205 - 1412 Border festivals of the Bavarian Nordgau and seat of the knights of Hirschberg.
    The rock and the ruin are listed buildings. If you bikest or wander on the Franconian mountain path you will come over here.
    Quotation Fichtelgebirgsverein: spare the witnesses of old times!
    Then a wonderfully blocked trail, can be easily drive with appropriate concentration and body tension.

    The ruin of the Hirschstein rock castle (744 m asl) lies on the north path between the Kirchenlamitz-Ost train station and the Kornberg summit. It was the location of a former castle complex, of which, however, only a few scant remains can be seen.
    The Hirschstein Castle, which was originally one of the oldest in the Fichtel Mountains, is said to have owned “zen Herschenstein” by Rüdiger and Utzo von Hirzberg in 1206. The castle was destroyed in the mid-14th century and never rebuilt.

    nice view of Kirchenlamitz and into the distance. Worthwhile stopover from Kirchenlamitz to the Kornberg.
