    We are several times a year on the Staffelberg or in the area. It's just beautiful there and is fun to hike and then good food there.

    A must, huge view and historically as well as geologically a highlight of the extra class. However, on nice weekends and holidays a bit crowded.
    A tip not far from the Spitzberg from the one has a beautiful view of the Staffelberg

    Even in winter, a climb to the Staffelberg is worthwhile. It's not as busy as it was in summer.

    Legend has it that the Staffelberg is full of water. A big fish is swimming in it, holding its tail in its mouth. If he lets go one day, the Staffelberg breaks up and floods the whole Main Valley.

    The Staffelberg is the mountain of Franconia u 539m high, on a tour around the mountain you have a wonderful view of the Thuringian Forest and the Rhön in good weather.
    On the mountain there is the Staffelbergklause with beer garden and the Adelgundis Chapel, built in 1653.

    A special mountain with history and fantastic all-round view. The effect is greatest when you ascend completely from the valley, always in front of the summit plateau.

    One of many great views of the basilica. Especially as a motivation if you still want to go there on the route.

    Magnificent all-round view on Staffelberg - no matter from which side. You can move around on the plateau with ease and enjoy the view in different directions

    The striking Staffelberg plateau was already around 5000 BC. Settled; this is evidenced by stone axes and devices made of flint and a few small shards of vessels. The mountain was visited again and again in the following millennia and was populated. Weapons and jewelry made of bronze were found from the early Urnfield Period. It is unclear whether the settlement was fortified in these early times, as is the case for the Ehrenbürg and the Heunischenburg. In the late Hallstatt period, from approx. 600 BC. BC, after an interruption another settlement began which is attributed to the Celts. Fortification is documented for the first time from this time.
    The Celts used the prominent summit plateau to build a fortified settlement area, a so-called oppidum.

    A beautiful place only unfortunately from spring mass migration. And too crowded.
