At 1,215 meters, the Fichtelberg is the highest mountain in the new federal states. The panorama from him is stunning. It extends over the Ore Mountains to the Bohemian Basin.
The weather station belongs to the German Weather Service. It is digitized and no longer occupied all the time. It is a structure clad with wood and fits very nicely into the ridge position.

I live close to the Fichtelberg ... In winter, many kilometers of groomed trails - great for cross-country skiing.
In summer by mountain bike, beautiful trails but a bit exhausting.
It is not far to Karlsbad in the Czech Egertal, about 100 kilometers by bike there and back, whereby you have to drive back about ten kilometers uphill to go back over the Ore Mountains ridge (900 meters in altitude).

The triangulation of the Kingdom of Sachse took place in the years from 1862-1890, and served the exact geodetic survey. The column dates from 1864. The measurement was based on the Grossenhain baseline. Because of the new building of the Fichtelberghaus in 1965, the column was moved 80 m to the south.
