    Many myths and legends surround the third highest mountain in the Bavarian Forest National Park - the Lusen (1,373 meters). So the devil himself should have had a hand in the development of this popular excursion mountain ...

    Impressive is the granite crest on the summit (one of the 100 most beautiful geotopes in Bavaria) and the breathtaking view of the Bavarian Forest, on clear days even up to the Alpine ridge.

    The summit of Lusens can be reached in summer as well as in winter via well-developed hiking trails. During the ascent you can discover such mystical and beautiful places as the Devil's Hole, the Martinsklause, the Himmelsleiter or the fascinating Glass Ark.

    The Lusen (Czech Luzný) is with its height of 1373 meters after the Great Rachel, Little Rachel, Small Arber, Plattenhausen bolt and Great Arber the sixth highest mountain in the Bavarian Forest / Bohemian Forest. Like the Rachel and the Großer Falkenstein in the Bavarian Forest National Park, it lies close to the border with the Czech Republic. In the surroundings are the villages Waldhäuser, Hohenau, Mauth and Finsterau as well as Modrava on the Czech side; From all, hiking trails lead to the summit.

    From Waldhäuser or National Park Center very good marks and directions.
    Hospitality and good selection for strengthening is of course at the Lusenschutzhaus.

    This is the Freden Bridge, not the summit of Lusen!

    There is always something going on at Lusengipfel. He is also suitable for short hikes. Before 9:00 am and after 4:00 pm you can drive to the parking lot Waldhausreibe by car. From there it is still about three quarters of an hour or hour to the summit.

    In every season a beautiful destination and to hike over many different tours.
    From 15.07. - 15.11. opens up a significantly larger area when the otherwise blocked trails are released.
    To my knowledge, the access to the parking Waldhausreibe is not always free in winter.

    A sunset on the Lusen is definitely worth the climb in the evening. As there are no disturbing lights, it is always an experience again.

    The Lusen is with its 1373 m, although none of the highest mountains in the Bavarian Forest, by the unbewaldeten peak and its location, however, one of the most beautiful mountain views. The striking granite block field in the summit area was created by physical weathering processes, in which water penetrates into small rock crevices and freezes. The volume expansion leads to the fragmentation of the rocks (frost blasting).

    For sunset on a mountain is always worthwhile. The unobstructed view of the horizon makes every sunset an unforgettable experience.
