Tips

  • Andreas Platzl

    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!

    Great view far over the entire region. Downstairs is a restaurant and a snack bar.

    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

    Very nice view when you climb the tower, on the actual summit between the trees, the view is a bit limited

    The Ochsenkopf between Warmensteinach and Bischofsgrün in the Upper Franconian district of Bayreuth is at 1024 m above sea level. NHN [1] the second highest mountain of the Fichtelgebirge. Spatially it belongs to the main unit High Fichtelgebirge (394). [2] [1] Only a little to the east of this mountain, above the village Fichtelberg, spring the White Main as the right or northern source of the Main River and the Fichtelnaab, one of the source rivers of the Naab. This is exactly where the European watershed runs. The Naab flows south towards the Danube, the Main flows west to the Rhine.

    On the summit there is the managed Asenturm tower as a lookout tower and a radio tower for FM, digital radio and digital TV programs of the Bavarian Radio.

    Nice view from the tower into the Fichtelgebirge. Cozy restaurant with beer garden and many possibilities for leisure activities.

    Nice place to take a break with playground for small and big children. Beer garden is great in summer. The duck in the pub has turned us on properly but unfortunately was a tough flop (3x).

    The tower can be climbed for free at your own risk.

    As beautiful as the lifts are, the ascent of Fleckl or Bischofsgrün is better

    Lookout tower with restaurant on the Ochsenkopf. Good to reach by lift.

    A great view. Although we were there on a rainy day, but that was worth it. You see nature from a completely different angle.

    Nice view from the tower and a cozy restaurant. We did the tour in rainy weather, but even then nature is beautiful.

    When the weather is nice, you have a great view over the Fichtelgebirge from the Asenturm (Schneeberg, Kösseine, Luisenburg, Wunsiedel ...).

    Somewhat hidden lies the Ochsenkopf landmark. A nice view from up here and some peace near the summit.

    You have to be a bit off-road to actually find the famous Ochsenkopf after the signpost to the landmark. On the rocks around you should take the time to walk around and look at the wonderful view in peace.

    The Südlift also runs in summer, the Nordlift only in winter.

    Wonderful views up to 150 km around in good visibility. Only the Schneeberg opposite in the northeast is just higher and blocks the view of the Vogtland

    Class. Huge "thrown around" boulders, similar to the Goethe rock. On them you can do some gymnastics and enjoy the view of Bischofsgrün, but you should be sure-footed. The "landmark" is nothing more than a rock engraving of an ox's head only about 60 cm long (see photos).

    Is a bit hard to find (a little bit you have to climb over rocks), but it's worth it - the landmark is probably already over 100 years old.
