    It is not for nothing that the Kössine mountain peak is called the "Queen of the Fichtelgebirge". A granite stick with a characteristic double head is hidden behind the Kosseine. The summit of the large Kössine lies at 939 meters, the small Kössine lies 200 meters to the east and reaches 922 meters. The landmark of the Kßeine is the rock labyrinth, which is especially fun for children! Here the little ones can really let off steam while climbing.

    Via umbrella rocks, Mariannenhöhe and Adlerfelsen you can get to the Kaiserfelsen on adventurous paths. Everywhere on the Kßeine you have a breathtaking view of a sea of granite formations and forests. Around a dozen different hiking trails lead to the summit of the Kßeine. There is a lookout tower and the Kßeinehaus offers a stop with a wonderful panoramic view.

    On the summit of the great Kösseine, the lookout tower rewards the climb with a fantastic panoramic view of the surrounding Fichtelgebirge, the Bavarian Forest, the Rhön, the Thuringian Forest and the Ore Mountains. Along the Kösseine runs, inter alia, the European watershed between the North Sea and the Black Sea.

    Right next door, the sun terrace of the Kösseinhaus invites you to relax.

    In winter it is quite windy, but do not be put off by this, the light and shadow plays of the cloud formations are often spectacular.
