The Hochstein (1333 m above sea level) is a granite rock group at the highest point of the Dreisesselberg in the Bavarian Forest (Germany).
It is located in the Lower Bavarian countryside Freyung-Grafenau about 370 m (as the crow flies) northwest of the German-Czech border.
The huge rock with a large summit cross can be climbed over a stone staircase. The panorama extends from the Plöckenstein over parts of the Bohemian Forest, the Almberg, the Haidel and the Lusen to the Rachel. On clear days, the view extends to the Alps.
Due to the public Dreisesselstraße, which leads to the nearly 450 m (as the crow flies) south of the Hochsteins standing Dreisesselhaus ("mountain inn Dreisessel"), the Dreisesselberg, especially the Hochstein, often heavily frequented. But there are also marked trails from all directions, for example, from the Kreuzbachklause, Haidmühle-Frauenberg or the Czech Nové Údolí on the Hochstein.
