    The nature reserve Großer Pfahl and Pfahlriegel St. Antoniuspfahl is a wonderful destination for the whole family. There is a lot to discover here on various circular routes and a nature trail with well-designed stations and informative display boards. Definitely worth seeing and rightly one of the most beautiful geotopes in Bavaria.

  • The big stake near Viechtach. As a bizarre white quartz rock, it appears particularly impressive on the surface of the earth.

  • The large stake is visible from the street and the small one is hidden in the forest.

  • If you like rocky landscapes, you will be pampered here on a short distance. The quartz rocks rise from the ground like the instep of a kite. Climbing insoles would be advisable if it weren't for you and you with nature. So you leave the rock to flora and fauna and instead marvel at this scenic gem from below.

  • A very mystical place. There are several circular routes that you can walk through an enchanted forest along the mining pit to the big post. This one is really impressive! At the end there is something historical about the place, how the rock made it from the rock down to the valley. If you are nearby, you should take a little walk.
    The little loop trail was about a 1-1/2 hour walk. You can park right at the beginning of the circular route.
