  • Wolly

    The Great Kordigast is about 420 meters long and 120 to 210 meters wide, running from west-south-west to east-north-east high plateau. On the flanks in the west, south and east, it drops steeply like a cliff. The 535.7 m above sea level. NN highest point of the plateau is located at the east-northeast end, in the middle it drops a few meters and rises to the west-southwest end again. The Great Kordigast is with hikers and tourists the much more popular destination of the two sub-mountains, as it is better developed and easily accessible and in the northeastern, tree-free area in fine weather a view over the Obermainland to the southern foothills of the Thuringian Forest, the Thuringian Slate Mountains , to the Franconian Forest and the Fichtelgebirge.

    The hike to the Great Kordigast with its 536 meters offers in clear weather a magnificent view to the Rhön and the Thuringian Forest. The city of Burgkunstadt with its districts is right at your feet.

    The Kordigast is a beautiful little hiking paradise on the edge of the Obermaintals and at the entrance to the Franconian Switzerland.

    Great view on half Upper Franconia, and if it had not been so cloudy, we would have seen something. But still it was a very nice tour.

    The east side has been cut down, so you have a very nice view, primarily to the north and east. You can in good weather, for example the Plassenburg, Veste Coburg, fortress Rosenberg and with some daring positioning lock Banz and the Staffelberg make out (yes, there is also a little west) and of course striking mountains.
