    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 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.

    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.

    Starting point is Lindenau-Berghäusl, a district of Achslach, parking facilities are provided on site. We follow the path marked red 4 in the direction of Hirschenstein and turn into the Mühlgrabenweg, a river hiking trail, to the right to the Ödwies. Continue past a chapel to the Hirschenstein. Its location and the seven-meter-high, stone lookout tower provide a unique panoramic view of the Bavarian Forest, in good weather even up to the Alps. An Unterstellhütte is ideal here for Brotzeitmachen. Strengthened it is now a piece on the trail red 8 to Schufleck. From here, our path continues on another part of the Mühlgrabenweg. The river walk offers beautiful views and the opportunity to observe fish. About the Goldsteig we return to the trail red 4 to Lindenau

    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.

    The Hirschenstein with 1,095 m altitude is located in the holiday region Hirschenstein in Lower Bavaria. Perched on its summit is the 7 meter high masonry lookout tower, the distinguishing feature of the Hirschensteins. Bronze plates attached to the tower provide the hikers with information about the recognizable mountain chain and its distances. From here you can enjoy a magnificent view to the southwest over the Danube plain to the edge of the Alps. Approximately 100 km of marked target and circular hiking trails with beautiful viewpoints in an area between 400 and 1095 m above sea level lead through the nature of the Bavarian Forest.

    Super nice view from the Hirschenstein tower possible in fine weather.
    In the refuge you can boil and strengthen yourself in winter, in summer outside on the seats with tables as well.
    A good destination in summer and winter ;-)

    The Hirschenstein is a 1095mNN mountain with a lookout tower and a shelter for self-catering.
    The view in clear weather is great, and a hiking / mountain bike tour is very worthwhile.

    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.
