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.

    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. 👎

    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.

    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.

    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.

    You can hike to the Schneekopf on various routes at any time of the year.
    In summer the tower offers the opportunity to climb, so pack your climbing shoes!
