    The Schneeberg is unlike the nearby Ochsenkopf less touristy developed. From the past is still the unmistakable and the peak his distinctive face conferring radio on the high plateau.
    The so-called "Backöfele", which normally serves as an observation platform, is currently closed.

    Tourist not as accessible as the Ochsenkopf you will find more peace to enjoy nature on the highest mountain in the Fichtelgebirge. In the autumn of 2017, the new viewing platform is the back of the oven again rebuilt and walkable. Thus, one can look unhindered over the trees and the old military monitoring system.

    Very interesting is also the environment, up to 2 km from the summit Schneeberg, there would be the Rudolfstein, the 1000m stone, the Haberstein, the Nußhardt and (alpine hut) the lake house after all still at 922 m; here is coffee, cake ☕️ 🍰 but also good food and snack.
    Opposite Schneeberg you can see the Ochsenkopf at 1024 m and the 885 m plateau next to it. DT

    On the Schneeberg summit you have a great view around the Fichtelgebirge. The climb is sometimes very difficult as you have to climb up a very rocky path. But the view compensates for all hardships 😎

    If you go by bike to the Schneeberg, it is recommended to take the route that does not include a rock road unless you like to carry your bike 😉

    Beautiful all-round view and good ascent opportunities, the highest point, 1051 m above sea level. The region of Upper Franconia should be seen and experienced ...

    To get up here with the bike, you should ask exactly how you should drive, we had to push a section on totally blocked terrain.

    The military structures, including the Telecommunication Tower, are not exactly a feast for the eyes, but on the highest elevation in the Fichtelgebirge you can already see over it - and beyond the surrounding landscape

    The Schneebergder with 1051 m above sea level. NHN is the highest mountain in the Fichtelgebirge in northeastern Bavaria and at the same time the highest mountain in Franconia and northern Bavaria. Beautiful view from the ascent "Backöfele" on the surrounding peaks of the Fichtelgebirge.

    The Schneeberg and over here at the 1000 meter stone is the highest point in Upper Franconia and therefore one should be on top 😊.
    Aufm Schneeberg with 1051 m above sea level. you have a very nice view and at the legendary Backöfele you can take a break from the climb and enjoy the panorama.
    Here on Schneeberggipfel was once military zone until 1990 and the distinctive tower was used for peeking & listening to the Iron Curtain 😎

    The "roof" of Franconia. Interesting remnants from the Cold War and great views all around.

    Very steep approach (7 - 12%) for both road bike and MTB. A detour is worthwhile and gives some additional altitude.

    The annual average temperature of 3.7 ° C in the summit region can be felt even in midsummer. It's just not so hot up there!
