Tips

  • Sebastian Kowalke

    With its height of 1,092 meters, Hirschenstein is one of the famous 18-thousanders in the Bavarian Forest. At the top of the summit there is a seven-meter-high masonry lookout tower. From its platform, you have a fabulous view over the mountain landscape of the Bavarian Forest and with a clear view to the Alps.

    The climb is worth it 😉Great foresight in good weather 🤩

    The Hirschenstein is 1095 m above sea level. NHN high mountain in the Bavarian Forest on the border area of the municipality of Achslach in the district of Regen and the municipalities of Schwarzach and Sankt Englmar in the district of Straubing-Bogen, the highest point of which it is.

    At the Hirschenstein there is a lookout tower with a wonderful view of the Danube valley. In bad weather you can find shelter in the hut.

    The Hirschenstein summit with its 1,095 m, its exposed location and the 7 m high lookout tower offers a view that is unique in the Bavarian Forest. In the east it extends from the Großer Arber to the Dreisessel, in the south you can see the area from Deggendorf to Straubing and in the west to the Gallner. On favorable days, the Alps from the Dachstein to the Zugspitze can be seen unhindered.

    The refuge has 2 very large tables and seating.
    It not only serves as a refuge but is also perfect for a snack so that you can continue on the tour strengthened.

    The Hirschenstein is always beautiful. There are many ways and ways to climb it. I definitely recommend the Mühlgraben. The observation tower is on the Hirschenstein and there is a shelter for bad weather.

    a wooden cross is hidden on the back of the large rock. Since the summit is marked there on the map, it is probably the summit cross.

    The Hirschenstein, which is overgrown with beech forests up to the summit and is 1,095 m high, is located in the municipality of Achslach. Its exposed location and the 7 m high stone observation tower at its highest point allow a unique panoramic view of the Bavarian Forest. Deer stone and shoe stain.

    Always the Großer Arber, sometimes even the Alps
    The view extends in the east from the Großer Arber to the Dreisessel, in the south the area from Deggendorf to Straubing and in the west as far as the Gallner. If the weather is good, the Alps from the Dachstein to the Zugspitze can even be seen on a few days. Notes on the tower railing explain to the visitor which mountains and places can be recognized.

    Super nice view from the Hirschenstein tower when the weather is nice.
    In the refuge you can simmer and fortify yourself in winter, and outside on the seats with tables in summer.
    A good destination in summer and winter ;-)
