    The snow head. In good weather you have a great panoramic view of the Thuringian countryside to the Rhön or the Harz with chunks 1142m.

    To climb the tower you need p.P. 3 EUR, change machine for 10 & 5 banknotes available. View from the top unfortunately only by slices. 👎

    With the visit of the spire is the only possibility in the Thuringian Forest to surpass the 1000 m.

    The Schneekopf has since June 2018 also a summit cross - made of wood and 4 meters high. In the future, a summit book should also be laid out in the tower.

    Duke Ernst II of Saxony-Gotha-Altenburg had in 1772 on the summit a small station for astronomical observations to build, which burned down in 1796. In 1852, a stone observation tower was built, but it has not survived. During the Second World War, the Schneekopf had a function in air reconnaissance in central Germany. In 1945 he was first occupied by US troops, then by the Red Army. In 1946, a hurricane led to windbreak damage so severe that the summit has since been clear of trees (Wikipedia).

    Completed in 2008.
    In tower neighborhood stood from 1852 to 1970 an octagonal stone lookout tower.
    A motive for the erection of the towers was including tower the 1.000 m height over N.N. to reach.

    On the snow head there are many nicely laid out resting places and mostly a refreshing wind blows during the vespers around the nose - just great, nature with a vision
