Opened in 1923, the Asenturm is still considered the best place for a spectacular Ochsenkopf view. As the second highest mountain of the Fichtelgebirge, located at an altitude of 1024m, the view seems to sweep over all of Bavaria. Unfortunately, he also attracts some visitors who arrive not only on foot but also with the chairlift. Nonetheless highly recommended!
The second highest mountain in the Fichelberg, but better developed than the Schneeberg, which means, the good view plus refreshments and if the feet no longer carry there is a mountain railway. If you are looking for more peace and quiet try Schneeberg. But the density of highlights around the Fichtlberg is z.b. with Weißmainfelsen and source etc. very high on small space
On the Ochsenkopf in 1876 an obelisk was set for land surveying. This is the remainder obtained.
Quote: "In 1876, the Royal Saxon Land Surveying, led by Professor Nagel near the HDNP, erected a stone pillar in obelisk form, which was used for European grade measurement purposes Saxon surveying pillar in the history.The obelisk still visible is the rest of the pillar, which was originally much higher.
