    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.

    The Blessberg is undoubtedly one of the most beautiful destinations in the surrounding area. The 867 m high mountain peak with its observation tower offers a unique view of Franconia, the Rhön and the Thuringian Forest.
    The Blessberg can be reached from all directions on well-developed hiking trails. Of particular note is the historic border path with its well-preserved boundary stones from 1565. The path can be reached from the parking lot on the B 281 between Saargrund and Siegmundsburg.
