    The Great Falkenstein is a 1,315 meter high mountain in the Bavarian Forest National Park. Various, sometimes demanding, trails lead to its summit. The area scores with a wonderful jungle and small waterfalls. Sturdy shoes and good functional clothing, depending on the weather, are highly recommended. After a successful ascent, you can look forward to a stop at the managed Falkenstein shelter - the view from the large panorama window is uniquely beautiful.The tour is all about the exciting landscapes of the Bavarian Forest National Park. On your way you wander through Filze, these are original high moor landscapes in which you can discover cranberries, bogberries, peat moss and cotton grass as well as the sundew, a carnivorous plant. The shafts are also exciting. These are former forest pastures for the young cattle that spent the few summer months here.But the jungle should be mentioned as a special highlight. After about four kilometers on your hike you will reach the Hans-Watzlik-Hain. A narrow path leads as an adventure path through the forest with its giant trees up to two meters thick, 500 years old and over 50 meters high. The right place to hug a tree. Do your arms reach around once? After the jungle comes the hard ascent. In total, more than 800 meters of altitude must be conquered.Before you reach the wonderful panorama of the summit and the well-deserved stop, you hike through a landscape on the wind-throw adventure trail that at first reminds you of a natural disaster. There are fallen trees lying around here and the forest is practically no longer there. In fact, a great storm has swept through here. The national park administration leaves the forest to self-regeneration - and nature works its way back into the beautiful forest.The ascent into this rustic landscape requires stamina and surefootedness, but you will be rewarded with incomparable peace and beauty. Please note that you should leave the forest quickly in a stormy wind or not enter it at all, because falling dead wood poses a risk here. In wet weather and in winter, the tour is much more difficult to tackle due to the risk of slipping and it is best not to do it.
