"Pöhlberg mountain" Annaberg-Buchholz Off The Beaten Path Tip by german_eagle
Annaberg-Buchholz Off The Beaten Path: 11 reviews and 45 photos
The local mountain of Annaberg is Pöhlberg, elevation 832 m. Doesn't sound very high, but it is definitely a landmark in the plateau-like landscape of the Erzgebirge. Like its neighbours Bärenstein and Scheibenberg mountains the Pöhlberg is a leftover of a volcano. The basaltic columns are clearly visible on the western western side of the mountain, a few metres off the road (parking) and also the hiking path from Annaberg up to the top.
I was not exactly sure whether to make this an Off the beaten path or Sports tip. Either is possible - if you have a car you can easily drive up but if you don't you face a (nice) hike of about 45 minutes uphill from Annaberg's centre. Once on top you're rewarded with wonderful panoramic views, Annaberg below and the mountains of the western Erzgebirge in the background. As the top plateau is wooded you need to walk around a bit to have views in all directions - or you climb the top of the viewing tower (free with guest card of Annaberg) which we did not due to lack of time.
See also my restaurant tip - the mountain hotel with restaurant and beergarden is worth a recommendation. Absolutely not to miss is the sunset from there. Just wow.
