    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 the northernmost foothill of the Frankenalb with the two corner points, the Großer Kordigast (536 m) with a wonderful view of the Obermaintal and the Kleine Kordigast (538 m) with the legendary rock group of the Steinerne Hochzeit.

    For us it is a real favorite place where you can discover a lot: Sign up in the summit book, discover rare plants or just enjoy the wonderful view!

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

    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.

    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.

    At the summit of the Kordigast there is also the station "More than a mountain" of the nature-culture-adventure trail Schlauwienix around the Kordigast.

    The entire route, starting from Weismain, Kastenhof, extends over 8 km. A total of 16 panels tell stories from the Weismain area and point out interesting points from nature and culture.

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