Tips

  • Daniel

    If someone speaks of the hiking area around the Großer and Kleiner Osser, you often hear the name "Matterhorn of the Bavarian Forest". Although this comparison might also be applied a bit thick, the Osser area is still a popular and extensive hiking area in the Bavarian Forest.

    One of the most beautiful peaks in the Bavarian Forest. Up here you can look far over the Bavarian Forest as well as deep into the Czech Republic.

    At the summit of the Osser it is always very busy. The last climb is a bit rocky.

    Osser - Grenzberg in the Bavarian Forest
    At Grenzberg Osser, directly on the Bohemian border, there is a wide panoramic view of the Bavarian side to the king of the Bavarian Forest, the Great Arber, and the ridge with the eight thousand meter peaks. (Goldsteig alternative 13)

    In the middle of wild terrain, behind the rugged rock of the Ossers, surprisingly the mountain rescue hut can be found. With a little luck with the weather, you will find a few cool drinks here and a view of the Czech language (which from a distance hardly differs from the Bavarian one).

    Not that easy ascent but it is rewarded with a great view 🤩Safetyfootedness and good shoes are required.

    The Osser is a mountain on the border between Germany and the Czech Republic, located in the Bavarian Forest or Bohemian Forest and belonging to the Künischen Mountains.
    The Czechs affectionately refer to the Osser as "breasts of the Mother of God". Of the locals, the local mountain of Lam is also called the "Matterhorn of the Bavarian Forest".
