Tips

  • Andreas J

    The potter with his hut and the many rock formations, including the Bohemian view, is a must for every visitor. Because the hut can also be reached with a pottery train.

    From the lookout rock you have a beautiful view of the German and Czech parts of the Zittau Mountains.

    A very nice destination with several points of view. You can eat delicious in the pottery or even just behind the house, in the shade, enjoy his Wanderproviant.

    Great view, good food in the Baude. What more do you want for a rest? One can do the potter very in a tour with the castle and then the Roland rock and the ant hill. Less experienced hikers can make a tour by Bimmel funicular.

    Rock gate
    "The rock formation is protected, which formed along a column in the chalk sandstone together with a rubble zone."
    The amortization sign from wander-book.com is located outside in the entrance area of the pottery hut. (Wander Card DE 4)

    The potter is undisputedly one of the most beautiful places in the Zittau Mountains. The great view, the raised summit cross, its charismatic rock formation with the historic spiral staircase and the great mountain management invite you to linger. A truly wonderful place. The visit is an absolute must for hiking fans and nature lovers.

    The pottery hut at 580m not only offers a spectacular view of the border triangle, but is also a rustic restaurant with hearty home cooking and accommodation. Enjoy the really great panoramic view with good visibility!

    The potter is the northernmost cornerstone of the beautiful Oybin valley. Its summit is crowned by strange rock formations such as "brooding hen", "Felsentor", "chick", "turtle", "parrot" and "saurian". The “potter”, who is called “Tepper” in the monk's script, was a cult site like the “Totenstein” in the “Königshainer Gebirge” in prehistoric times.

    The first pottery hut was built in 1860, after a fire the current hut was put into operation in 1905.

    The rock gate on the potter is a beautiful lookout rock, but also with regard to its calendar behavior in interaction with the sun. Since 2008 it has been examined by the public and school observatory "Bruno-H.-Bürgel" in Sohland / Spree, department of archaeoastronomy.

    It was found that the opening angle of the rock gate from the west corresponds exactly to that of the sunrise for the year (from solstice to solstice) and from the east the sun sets exactly in the middle of the gate at the summer solstice.
