On the north path between the Kirchenlamitz-Ost train station and the Kornberg summit lies the ruins of the Hirschstein Castle (744 meters). It was the site of a former castle, but unfortunately only a few remains can be seen. Hirschstein Castle, originally one of the oldest of the Fichtelgebirge, Rüdiger and Utzo von Hirzberg is said to have heard “zen Herschenstein” as early as 1206. Towards the middle of the 14th century, the castle was destroyed and never rebuilt.
