    Church steeped in history on the former volcano. Unfortunately closed all the time. Never been in it, no matter when and how often I was up there. There are many legends and stories:The fires on the armes mountain
    The then pastor of the Armesberg, Arckhauer, wrote the following:
    “It has been said throughout that, from unimaginable years and still from my time, burning bright fires were seen on the mountain at night. After various discourses, I had Johann Grüßl, the mayor of Kemnath, tell me that he saw three large fires on this mountain from Kemnath at midnight about twenty years ago. Ingleichen told Mr. Johann Schreyer von Blumenthal on Grünberg and Bodenwöhr, selflessly benevolent about Grünberg, that he had seen Berg Armes mentioned for many hours in full fire for three hours, and what kind of fire indication of my time there have been several. ”Pastor Arckhauer considered these fires to be something unnatural and supernatural. The inhabitants of the surrounding villages recognized these fires as a sign of a hidden treasure. Nobody dared to get to the bottom of the causes of the night fires because the dark forests were full of ghosts and fiends, as people believed.For many years no one has ever seen a fire or anything similar on the mountain. An explanation for the brightly burning fires may be the ore and precious metal seekers who were often on the road in the area at the time, whose nightly melting fires were sighted

    Pilgrimage church, viewpoint, rest area, Geo-Info Center, playground, excursion restaurant Mesnerhaus (for the area a bit expensive, but quiet and nice location).

    It's a shame that the trees are already so tall.
