Mountain Biking Highlight
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
