Tips

  • Maren Ingrid

    At the summit of the Kösseine, the lookout tower rewards the ascent with a fantastic panoramic view of the surrounding Fichtelgebirge, the Bavarian Forest, the Rhön, the Thuringian Forest and the Ore Mountains. The European watershed between the North Sea and the Black Sea runs across the Kösseine.

    Right next door, the sun terrace of the Kösseinhaus invites you to relax.

    The view, if the tower is not locked for maintenance, is magnificent. You can look very far in good visibility. Really great

    It is not for nothing that the Kössine mountain peak is called the "Queen of the Fichtelgebirge". A granite stick with a characteristic double head is hidden behind the Kosseine. The summit of the large Kössine lies at 939 meters, the small Kössine lies 200 meters to the east and reaches 922 meters. The landmark of the Kßeine is the rock labyrinth, which is especially fun for children! Here the little ones can really let off steam while climbing.

    Via umbrella rocks, Mariannenhöhe and Adlerfelsen you can get to the Kaiserfelsen on adventurous paths. Everywhere on the Kßeine you have a breathtaking view of a sea of granite formations and forests. Around a dozen different hiking trails lead to the summit of the Kßeine. There is a lookout tower and the Kßeinehaus offers a stop with a wonderful panoramic view.

    Top of Fichtelgebirge - the tower on the summit of the Großer Kösseine offers a unique panorama over the surrounding forests and peaks of Tröstauer Forst. Descriptions in the directions tell you what you can see in the distance everything. Right next door, the sun terrace of the Kösseinehaus invites you for a snack.

    Even increase from the Luisenburg. Good footwear is required, as it goes over long stretches of rocky and stony paths. A rewarding hiking day, which offers a welcome stop on the sun terrace of the Kösseine-Haus. You should choose a day with a long-distance view.

    Top vantage point over the surrounding area of the Kosseine.
    Anyone who is here on the summit should definitely not miss the tower.

    In winter it is quite windy, but do not be put off by this, the light and shadow plays of the cloud formations are often spectacular.

    At 939m one of the highest peaks in the Fichtelgebirge and a real highlight. Because of the free, wide view in all directions (Bavarian Forest, Rhön, Thuringian Forest, Ore Mountains), the Kösseine is a much-visited mountain massif. In addition to the main European watershed between the North Sea and the Black Sea, the border between the Bavarian administrative districts of Upper Franconia and the Upper Palatinate also runs across the Kösseine. There is also a beautiful mountain inn up here, the Kösseinehaus.

    Class observation tower, which is not high, but in an exposed place offers a fabulous panoramic view. But: In winter he may be difficult to reach because of icy slippery.
