The Große Kordigast, 538 with, is a mountain with a wonderful view of the Rhön, Coburg Land, Franconian Forest, Franconian Jura and Fichtel Mountains. There are many hikers here in the afternoon, now at 10 o'clock in the morning I'm up here all alone. There is also a summit book in the box on the cross.

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.
