    After a hard ascent you are now on the second highest mountain in Saxon Switzerland. From the observation tower on the 556 meter high Winterberg you have a breathtaking panoramic view. Before continuing, you can take a rest in the mountain inn.

    Great case! Because it's not just about the economy. Much worse, the observation tower too. So you can not look over the trees and thus has nothing from the view. You only see forest.

    Only drinks and sausages you get.

    I was so annoyed that we are there for free, so to speak!

    A little Italian cuisine. Not extensive but tasty and inexpensive.

    Unfortunately, the inn was closed during my visit in 2018.

    Unfortunately, you can not enter the observation tower and therefore has no chance to have a nice view of the landscape.

    Unfortunately, the inn is currently closed, probably because of the sewage treatment plant. But the snack bar attracts with Bockwurst, Tarte Flambée and drinks.

    If you want to take a break and have your own picnic with you, you should definitely go for another 10 minutes to the Kipphornaussicht! From there you have a great view and can really enjoy the break. The Winterberg unfortunately offers no view if the tower is not accessible.

    Unfortunately no way to climb the tower. And therefore no way to get a view from the top, very much a pity ...

    It was the highest point of our hike and the ideal place to pause there.
