    From the observation tower on the Bleßberg you have a breathtaking view over the Thuringian Forest, as far as Franconia and the Fichtelgebirge. After the ascent to the observation deck, you can treat yourself to a break in the year-round hiking hostel.

    The Bleßberg with its lookout tower is a beautiful hiking destination. The 867 meter high summit with its observation tower offers a unique view of the Franconia, the Fichtelgebirge, the Rhön and the Thuringian Forest.

    I tackled the lead from the Itz spring in Stelzen by bike. Well-developed forest trails and at the destination a view of all effort is worth. Highly recommended for ambitious cyclists.
