    The Dreisessel (1,312 meters) is certainly one of the most striking mountains in the Bavarian Forest.

    Impressive along the way is especially the "Stone Sea", a huge cluster of large granite rocks. This place is one of the most beautiful geotopes in Bavaria. Already from the Steinerne Meer offers a great view of the Bavarian Forest over the Passauer Land.

    Shortly after the Steinernen Meer you reach with the border triangle another special feature of the tour. Here at the landmark, Germany, the Czech Republic and Austria meet.

    Always along the border ridge you walk, past the Bavarian Plöckenstein, to the Dreisesselfelsen, which unreal acting auftürmt in the midst of the landscape. From there you can enjoy incomparable views.

    To the celebrity helped the Dreisessel probably also the well-known Bayerwald poet Adalbert Stifer, who refers in some of his stories to this rock formation.

    According to a legend, the name "Dreisessel" comes from the way: On this rock, the kings of Bavaria, Bohemia and Austria once met to define the borders of the respective kingdoms. When the kings then took a seat on the rock, the three-legged chair was formed.

    Legend:
    Around the three-legged chair many legends and myths are entwined, one tells one however still today. They report on three kings from Bavaria, Austria and the Czech Republic, who sat on the stone thrones and there determined the borders of their countries. Their peoples dealt with the hunting, where they discovered the Plöckensteiner lake. Out of the water they caught trout that they tried to cook. Instead of dying on the hot water, the fish became more alive. In the forest there was a violent roaring and roaring, on the lake a rushing and howling, but to the astonishment of the heathen neither leaf nor branch moved. From the water came a voice: "Not all are at home ... at home." The men threw the fish back into the lake with a start, and peace immediately returned. Hurriedly, they made their way back to their kings and reported on the strange event. Thereupon the kings left their thrones and never came again

    A beautiful autumn hike to the Dreisessel. One of my favorite hiking areas, as you can find total peace here. In addition, there are the most beautiful sunsets to see here.

    At the highest point of the Dreisesselberg, called Hochstein, there is a striking granite rock with a summit cross. The area, which was once heavily wooded, was extensively cleared as a result of bark beetle infestation. From the tree vegetation in places only deadwood can be seen

    Very beautiful sunrise in the morning. You should either come in the morning or in the late afternoon then you have very nice light and not too many people.

    Beautiful loop from the Dreisesselalm up to Hochstein and then at the former ski lift back down to the pasture
