    Grandiose view you have from the Teufelskanzel.

    Duke Ernst II of Saxony-Gotha-Altenburg had in 1772 on the summit a small station for astronomical observations to build, which burned down in 1796. In 1852, a stone observation tower was built, but it has not survived. During the Second World War, the Schneekopf had a function in air reconnaissance in central Germany. In 1945 he was first occupied by US troops, then by the Red Army. In 1946, a hurricane led to windbreak damage so severe that the summit has since been clear of trees (Wikipedia).

    A beautiful viewpoint below the Schneekopf. The ascent is worth a short detour here.

    I think here you should not stay too long, because the most beautiful is still here but to take the view of the Thuringian land is an absolute must

    Unfortunately, the bench is not very knee and back friendly - far too deep.
    So, more for the kids

    Be careful when putting on the bench and the opposite railing - does not make the safest impression and the bench is too deep for the knees
