  • Great station on the nature trail at the Great Stake. The well-made display boards explain the formation, the mining, the loading and the effort with which the quartz rock was broken out of the earth and loaded. On the educational trail you can see the loading station, an old material ropeway, an old blacksmith's shop with a tipping lorry, as well as the former braking station.

  • Old Forge

    The quartz quarrying at the Great Stake used to be mainly carried out with simple tools and equipment. Larger machines were not used at that time.

    These tools were exposed to a high level of wear and tear when machining the extremely hard quartz rock.

    Up until the early 1960s, the tools and equipment were constantly repaired and minor repairs carried out in this forge.

    Today the forest kindergarten of the city of Viechtach is located here.

  • Nice hiking trail around the rocks. Not demanding. The quartz rocks are impressive, great structure. Ideal for a family outing. Depending on your choice, the route is between approx. 2 and 6 km
