There it stands majestically, at 1,456 meters, the highest mountain in the Bavarian Forest: the Great Arber. It is not for nothing that this mountain is nicknamed “King of the Bavarian Forest”, as it impresses not only with its height but also with its diverse range of leisure activities and hiking tours. The mountain can be hiked from all sides, a well-signposted network of trails leaves nothing to be desired. The main summit of the Arber (there are four in total) is also called Richard-Wagner-Kopf and offers impressive views of the Bavarian-Bohemian border mountains, the national park mountains Rachel and Lusen and the Bavarian Forest.

One possibility is to leave the car at the large Arbersee, to take a bus to the valley station and from there take the cable car to the mountain station. From there, the Arberweg, which is also walkable for smaller children, leads back to the lake.
By the way, on sunny working days in the summer holidays it can get pretty crowded up there. At the summit cross in the late morning, we barely got through, because the people jostled.

Beautiful hike from Schetterschachten across the Großer Arbersee to the Großer Arber and back via Mittagagsplatzl.
