  view to Ochsenkopf
by elgin99

In the north of Bavaria, close to my home region there are the mountains of Fichtelgebirge. from far awy you can see mountains like Epprechtstein, großer Waldstein, Wetzstein or Ochsenkopf.

This were the mountains I could see in the far if I stood on our hills. But a visit was only possible after reunfication.

It is a nice and wooded region with many interesting rocky formations. The mountains are the water divide of Germany.

The most famous mountain is the Ochsenkopf (1023 ms) with its Asenturm. Many springs are there, e.g. Weißer Main or Naab. A cable railway brings the tourists to the high. The wide panorama is wonderful.
It is a walking and winter sport region.

Directions: A9 - Bischofsgrün, also about A93 from/to Regensburg
