    At 1,455 meters, the Großer Arber is the highest mountain in the Bavarian Forest. From its summit you can see the Alps in good conditions. But of course you have to earn such a view first. Many paths lead to the summit and back down. From the gravel road to the challenging singletrack everything is there. The Arberschutzhaus offers everything for your physical well-being. Also overnight stays are possible.

    Opening hours:
    Daily from 10 to 16 o'clock with continuous warm kitchen.

    The four peaks of the Großer Arber offer visitors a variety of views of the surrounding Bavarian Forest. The four summits are called Hauptgipfel with summit cross, Bodenmaiser bars, the Kleine Seerriegel and the Große Seerriegel. The Großer Arber is 1455.5 m the highest mountain of the Bavarian Forest and Lower Bavaria. On the summit region are two Luftwaffe buildings with radomes. The Arber Air Defense Facility is operated as part of the Integrated NATO Air Defense System.

    Easily accessible by e-bike, just below the summit, it is technically difficult due to coarse gravel.

    Beautiful panoramic view 360 * 👍👌 The Great Arber (Velký Javor in Czech) is 1455.5 m above sea level. NHN [1] the highest mountain in the Bohemian Forest / Bavarian Forest and Lower Bavaria. It is also the highest mountain in Bavaria outside the Alps and, after the Feldberg, the second highest mountain in Germany outside the Alps. In addition, a rock bar west of the summit cross with 1439.6 m height represents the highest point of the Upper Palatinate. Therefore, the mountain in the Lower Bavarian district of Regen and in the Upper Palatinate district of Cham is called the "King of the Bavarian Forest". Its summit region consists of paragneiss.

    The last few meters on the bike path are steep, but the way up is definitely worth it, a wonderful view. In clear weather up to the Alps.

    The two radar towers have been the landmark of the Großer Arber for over 30 years.The radar towers on the Großer Arber have long since become a real landmark of the highest mountain in the Bavarian Forest. The highest construction site in the Bavarian Forest is to be set up there in summer: the dome on the main tower will be renewed.The Federal Ministry of Defense is investing around 2.2 million euros in this "national defense construction project" so that in the future the airspace in a 450-kilometer radius from Berlin to Venice can be monitored from the Arber.
