  • Maren Ingrid

    From the highest elevation of the Fichtelgebirge there is a comprehensive view of the Franconian and Thuringian Forest, Magpie and Ore Mountains and the Bavarian-Bohemian border mountains.

    In good weather you have a great view of the Fichtelgebirge. Although there is no restaurant to stop, but you can make yourself at a small rest area directly in front of the Backöfele (observation tower) comfortable. Up here, however, it can be quite fresh, so if possible take a jacket (annual average temperature according to Wikipedia 3.7 degrees).

    Homestead of many animals that feel at home here in the rough nature. Always worth a hike. It is not without reason "the roof of Franconia"

    he Schneeberg is 1051 m above sea level. NHN the highest mountain in the Fichtelgebirge in northeast Bavaria and at the same time the highest mountain in Franconia and northern Bavaria. You can recognize him from afar by the former Bundeswehr telecommunications tower, a memorial to the Cold War. The summit area consists of a granite block sea and a rock castle on which the lookout tower Backöfele stands. Military buildings shape the summit picture.

    Several thousand years ago, the Schneeberg was supposed to have been higher than the Alps.
    Ice, rain and wind have made him crippled, hence the rocky seas.
    Hard to imagine what nature can do

    Narrow, hidden path from the 1000m rock to the Schneeberg summit. A change from the wide forest path.

    Very narrow path through the undergrowth to get to the Schneeberg summit. An alternative to the wide forest path.

    I wanted to follow this tip and go down the trail in September 2018 from Schneeberg. Unfortunately I did not find the upper entry despite a long search.

    The highest mountain of the Fichtelgebirge and Franconia does not make much on its unprotected small hilltop. No rock formations, old decaying military installations and a beautiful lookout tower - that's all. In favorable weather fantastic vision all around except southwest, the view is blocked by the Ochsenkopf massif.

    Helpful information from expert Gerhard:

    "The former path from the Schneeberg to the 1000m stone was unfortunately blocked and dismantled by the forest a few years ago for the sake of game preservation; it can only be found on outdated maps!"

    In addition to the Ochsenkopf the Schneeberg is also worth a hike. You can enjoy a great view here.

    The Franconian mountain path is very long but this piece is also ideal for MTB riders.
