Tips

    Many myths and legends entwine around the third highest mountain in the Bavarian Forest National Park - the Lusen (1,373 meters). The devil himself is said to have played a role in the creation of this popular excursion mountain ...

    The granite dome on the summit (one of the 100 most beautiful geotopes in Bavaria) and the breathtaking view of the Bavarian Forest, on a clear day even as far as the Alpine ridge, are impressive.

    The summit of the Lusens can be reached via well-developed hiking trails in summer and winter. On the ascent you can discover such mystical and beautiful places as the Teufelsloch, the Martinsklause, the Himmelsleiter or the fascinating Glass Arche.

    These many "green" stones on the summit are simply impressive and absolutely worth seeing. It's not only great fun for children to climb up here and admire the great natural spectacle.

    One of the most impressive rock formations in the Bavarian Forest National Park and at the same time a well-known geological attraction is the Blockmeer at the summit of the Lusen. Granite blocks pile up wildly on an area of more than 200,000 square meters. This block field owes its formation to frost weathering during the Quaternary period

    The green stones are really something special! 💚 Good hiking shoes are advantageous, as walking on the sea of blocks requires good surefootedness. Va. In wet weather you should be careful here, also because some stones move as soon as you step on it!

    It is beautiful on the Lusen in summer or winter, fantastic hiking tours are possible there.
    The winter hiking trail also does not quite allow safe people who do not want to climb rocks to climb up to the refuge.

    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.

    In good weather, an impressive view. One of the most popular mountains of the Bayerwald (you can see in good weather in summer)

    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.

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

    A must for every hiker. No matter what year or time of day you should have been on Lusen. Great 360 ° all-round view.

    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).

    It was a spectacular, wonderful and really very encouraging hike on the "summer path" in this wonderful winter landscape! Down the "Winterweg". The view on the way up and from the summit was breathtaking! Super great experience!
