Vom Wald das Beste. – Nationalparkregion Bayerischer Wald

Bayerisch Eisenstein

Scenic highlight between Mount Arber and Spičák

Bayerisch Eisenstein lies amid the wild forest of the cross-border National Park, in the scenically most impressive part of the Bavarian Forest. Mount Großer Arber is the local mountain of the Eisenstein inhabitants, and at 1,456 metres it is the highest mountain of the Bavarian Forest. In summer, Bayerisch Eisenstein is an ideal hiking region, and in winter it is a modern ski area in Central Europe with the safest conditions for snow.

In the southernmost corner of the Bavarian Forest between Mount Großer Arber and Mount Großer Falkenstein lies the idyllic community Bayerisch Eisenstein. With its crystal-clear air and the surrounding mountain lakes, like Lake Arber, walks become unforgettable. On the adventure path through Wazlik-Hain you can discover 500-year-old giant trees. As an alternative, the wild-romantic river hiking path with its pond in Regenhütte invites you for a swim.

Also cyclists get their money’s worth on the cycle paths of Regental and the National Park: 40 GPS-registered mountain bike tours in ArberLand provide ideal cycling fun. With the GUTI (an environmental-friendly ticket for public transport), guests can also use the cross-border bus and train transfers for free, and thus enjoy particularly comfortably infinite hiking fun.

In winter, Mount Großer Arber is the venue of international alpine contests and offers the best conditions on 15 km well-groomed slopes with three cross-country centres for winter sport aficionados. At the Hohenzollern Skistadion you can even register for a trial biathlon course all throughout the year. Moreover, the picturesque winter landscape invites you to take a peaceful walk on snow-cleared paths.
