    Very nice newly renovated restaurant and hotel with huge outdoor terrace directly above the water, food tastes great!
    The small loop around the lake is often overcrowded, perhaps because of the adjacent campsite or just because some people come to this beautiful spot earth.

    The Fichtelsee is not only nice to look at but offers a refreshing bathing experience in summer.

    We started our tour here and let it end here again. Parking next to the hotel, good food and friendly staff. What we wanted to say, we did not go over the water, probably the GPS has misunderstood something!

    Stiller dammed up forest lake with "acidic" fish-free water. Quiet rather not, there are many tourists. Bathing and boat driving.

    At times pretty crowded and thus long waiting times.
    Very nice location right on the Fichtelsee.

    Note from me: Snedr often absolutely deliberately creates duplicates for personal point collecting; alone here at Ochsenkopf you will find quite a few. I think that, to say the least, a mess. Komoot gets more and more ridiculous and makes it difficult for outsiders to plan the route.
    Please do not rate such HL positive.

    A great place to start your tours. The hotel is right on the lake and you can eat, drink and spend relaxing hours. The best time is during the week

    Even in winter (mid-Feb) a relaxing destination with plenty of peace and nature. One should expect at this time of year with some icy ways (during the day it thaws and night freezes everything violently).

    Great ambience and fast service. The "Kaiserschmarrn" was wonderful.
