I still wonder where to enjoy the better view. From the Asenturm at the Ochsenkopf or here at the Nußhardtgipfel on the Ochsenkopf. Mighty rock walls and rock towers enthrone seemingly wild. Small tip: Keep your eyes open, because on the south side of the largest rock you can find a narrow cave entrance. The so-called "Nusshardtstube". But do not make it too cozy, because the descent still follows.
For those interested in caves, the granite pile near the summit holds a gem, the Nußhardtstube. It is quite possible that hikers just walk past without even the slightest notice. In two places you can squeeze yourself inside between the giant granite blocks. Then you stand inside this cover cave with a total aisle length of 58 m, a vertical extension of 9 m. The middle part is not roofed over 6 m in length. 4 side branches branch off. The oldest known description of the Nußhardt summit dates back to 1716. It contains no reference to the cave. It is mentioned for the first time in a text from the year 1799, which comes from the hand of Helfrecht. It is reproduced here in full, because the Zeitkolorit comes to light, not least the weird strange word choice and the spelling of the words: "The most remarkable thing is on the top of a large rock cave on 30 steps long and 3 - 4 steps wide, in which about 100 people would still have more space than those captured Englishmen in Calcutta.There is no Veteran Cave, but the largest in our mountains, and bears some resemblance to those in that they are almost in the middle, where the overlying rocks do not form a complete roof, having a hole to day which gives their brightness, large rocks close together at the entrances, and one gets no other way than in a humble position, but inside it is spacious enough to be quite Here the wild pretend thieves are said to have had an excellent hiding place, of which hunting is very important been impaired. ".
In 1987, the cave was carefully surveyed by the Spelaeo group northeastern Upper Franconia and a plan created.
The Nußhardt is 972 m above sea level. NN the third highest mountain in the Fichtelgebirge. Its rocky summit is one of the most beautiful rocky peaks in the Fichtelgebirge. Between the granite boulders on the summit, there is the so-called "Nusshardtstube", which can be entered at two inconspicuous places, if one presses in between the granite blocks. Below the ascent of the summit rock, there is a nice, sunny rest area.
Great view on the trail, only half an hour's walk from the lake house.
At 972m, overlying boulders form a cave, the so-called Nusshardtstube. On the lookout cliff there are nine weathering hollows, which the vernacular calls druid bowls.
To Nußhardt very beautiful paths, rocky and wurzlig, where you have to open your eyes sometimes! On this day, the weather has visibly not played, but in good weather you can see all the high peaks of the Fichtelgebirge. Also the "Nußhardtstube is worth a visit, look at the ascent to the left, you can already discover below.
For me the most beautiful and interesting summit / rock castle in the Fichtelgebirge. Also, the more difficult way from and there corresponds to my ideas. Unfortunately, I did not find the cover cave mentioned on the information board. A plan on the information board would not be bad.
