    The origin of Naab (Fichtelnaab) lies at the south and southeastern foot of the Ochsenkopf, where numerous rivulets merge and unite with the captured Naabquelle. The Fichtelnaabquelle lies at 867 meters above sea level in the Hochwald forest. With the inlets of the Waldnaab from the Upper Palatinate Forest and the Heidenaab, coming from the Steinwald, the Naab forms the central gully of the Upper Palatinate to the Danube.

    Also a nice place to stay. Just behind the source is a cottage with tables and benches. Can you also make a good rest.

    The Fichtelnaab is the 42 km long, right and western source river of the Waldnaab in Upper Franconia and the Upper Palatinate. It rises in the Fichtelgebirge and forms the Waldnaab near Windischeschenbach together with the Tirschenreuther Waldnaab
