Mountain Biking Highlight

    The lion lies in a natural grotto in a rock face on the Mitwitzer mountain.
    If you leave Mitwitz in the direction of Coburg, then you will find a lion about 200 meters after leaving the village on the top left of the mountain. But do not worry, it's not real. The lion does not bite. He is carved out of sandstone and enthroned for many years on Mitwitzer mountain.

    The lion is not located directly on the bike path or the road. From the parking lot you can use a footpath to reach the top of the rock.
