    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.

    The Große Arber is always worth a detour - from here you have an amazing view over the Bavarian Forest and Bohemian Forest

    From Bodenmais over the Riesloch Falls the ascent to the summit of Aber begins.

    In good weather, definitely visit! The gondola ride is not so expensive and the way up is great

    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.

    One of the most beautiful views in the Bavarian Forest.
    Overcrowded during the day.
    Ideal for a sunrise hike.

    It is absolutely fantastic on the large Arber. Many beautiful and strenuous hiking trails lead up to the "King of the Bavarian Forest".
    Always worth a recommendation 👍

    The summit of the Großer Arber is actually just one of several elevations on the "summit plateau". Here you have a beautiful view of the Bavarian Forest.

    You can also enjoy the view at any time, even if you don't want to run up. By the gondola!

    Due to the cable car, many people are up here, but it is an easily conquered summit. The view is worthwhile.

    Great view in good weather, but very many tourists.
    Visit but definitely worth it.

    The king of the Bayerwoid. Always beautiful! It can be reached through relatively well-paved gravel roads. But more challenging paths also lead to the summit. There is something for everyone! 👍🏼
