Pöhlberg is a prominent elevation in this part of the Ore Mountains which consists mostly of a plateau with rolling hills and some valleys. The mountain has volcanic origins, though VERY long ago, hence consists of basalt.

If you like walking, the top can be reached in a medium-easy walk from Annaberg's old town in about 45 minutes. There is some ascent but not too steep. But there is also a road up.

The summit offers a wide view over the hilly landscape and over Annaberg. It is covered with forest, hence from the ground you see only one direction. The viewing tower adds 32 metres of height and takes you above the tree tops.

For the romantic minds among you - the top of Pöhlberg is a great place to enjoy the sunset. Ladies, we know that most men are interested in sunsets only because they know it's dinner time afterwards. To convince your companion, tell him about the restaurant and beer garden up there and that you both can enjoy good beer, good and abundant food AND the sunset at the same time.
