    It looks like a majesty, the highest mountain of the Bavarian Forest at 1,456 meters: the Großer Arber.

    It is not for nothing that this mountain bears the epithet "King of the Bavarian Forest", but in addition to its height, it impresses with its diverse range of leisure activities and hiking tours.

    The mountain can be hiked from all sides, a well signposted road network leaves no wanderer wish unfulfilled. The main summit of the Arber (in total there are four) is also called Richard Wagner Head, and offers impressive views of the Bavarian-Bohemian border mountains, the National Park Rachel and Lusen and the Bavarian Forest.

    A popular destination for an arber hike are the two lakes, the Great and Small Arbersee. The so-called Karseen offer wonderful motifs and invite you to a long break in a dreamlike ambience.

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

    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

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

    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.

    "Freedom must be limitless above the clouds", such a feeling works during a winter hike before the shooting season

    Very nice view. Who likes it more quiet must be outside the hours of operation of Godel above.

    Beautiful view, especially the small Arbersee with its 3 floating moss rugs impressed us.
