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.

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.
