Tips

  • Altmärker 54

    At 978 meters, the Schneekopf is the second highest elevation in Thuringia after the Great Beerberg (983 meters). From here you can enjoy magnificent views all around. A visit to the top of the tower is the only way to beat 1000 meters in the Thuringian Forest.

    Here at 978 m you have a really great all-round view of other peaks in the Thuringian Forest and the Rhön, up to the Ettersberg near Weimar and Oberhof. With very good visibility, such as winter inversion weather conditions, the view extends to the Brocken in the Harz Mountains, to the Schneeberg (Fichtelgebirge) and to the western Ore Mountains. You can also see the “Wilde Gera” (A 71) motorway bridge, the largest arched bridge in Germany with a span of 252 m.schneekopf.euAnd if you want, you can crack the 1000 meter mark here on the observation tower for three euros. Diligence also has its price.

    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.

    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.

    The summit cross on the Schneekopf, built in 2018, is the first thing you will see - coming from the steep north path - after a strenuous ascent. In contrast to most summit crosses, this one does not have a summit book in which you could register. The massive cross is well suited for the photo album.

    On the Schneekopf there are many lovingly laid out rest areas and mostly the refreshing wind blows around the nose during Vespers - simply great, pure nature with a view.

    The Schneekopf, the second highest elevation in the Thuringian Forest, is worth a visit at any time of the year. You rarely get peace here, because the Schneekopf offers two worthwhile attractions - the observation tower and the Neue Gehlberger Hütte - which are open daily from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. and receive guests from all over the world. Many seating options and lovingly designed picnic benches invite you to linger.

    Gigantic view in imperial weather

    Great destination in summer and winter. Even with a lot of snow, the paths are made easy to walk on.

    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. 👎

    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.
