  • Sebastian (Ziggi)

    Very nice view over the summits of the Fichtelgebirge (Ochsenkopf, Schneeberg, Nußhardt) - very worthwhile. In good weather, the view extends to about 50 kilometers.

    In no case just pass by. The entrance to the stairs is a bit hidden, but the view opens up from above. Everything is very romantic!

    Since the ascent is not too difficult you should have visited the viewpoint urgently. Also ideal for a little rest

    Beautiful lookout rock. Steps facilitate the ascent. At the top, a railing secures the hiker.

    Stone steps and stairs have been leading on the lookout rocks since 1878. There is a limited view of the Großer Waldstein, the Schneeberg, the Kßeine and the basalt cones at Kemnath. An overview board made of ox head proterobas makes orientation easier.

    The Weißmainfelsen offers a very nice view, which is surpassed only by the Asenturm on the Ochsenkopf.

    Remains of a mine shaft, named after the Venetians, are said to be on the northeast side of the rock. There is a small rock cave near the rock group west towards the Weißmain spring.

    The view is severely limited by the trees. Worthwhile for the change in a long hike with good seating. It's fun to climb up.

    A nice point on the ascent / descent. When you have climbed the steps, you have a breathtaking view of the Fichtelgebirge. At 929m there is a small table that invites you to linger.

    A highlight on the eastern flank of the Ochsenkopf - and also a highlight of the HINTERINDIEN.DE tour no. 120

    Nice view and definitely worth photos. The climb is worth it.
    Ascent by stairs, which are quite narrow and sometimes quite steep.

    The Weissmainfelsen lies between Ochsenkopf and Schneeberg. So you have a great view of the surrounding area.

    The gigantic Weißmainfelsen lies away from the large hiking trails - via small paths, but easily signposted. An exciting short ascent allows you to walk on the rock without any problems. You will be rewarded with a great view from up here. The place below the rock invites you to linger.
