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.

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.

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).
