Just a short distance to the south of the town of Oberoderwitz is the beautiful Spitzberg observation rock (510 m). You can drive directly to it on a narrow road or go up the hill on the yellow hiking trail from Oberoderwitz or the green trail from Spitzkunnersdorf. Another option is a small parking lot by the main road, from where we will go to the top. Two short via ferrata, or a normal path up the stairs secured by a railing, lead to the rockery itself. The views from the top are beautiful.

A comfortable start to the hike

We start from a small parking lot by the road connecting Oberoderwitz with Spitzkunnersdorf. The first 400 meters are pretty level along the boardwalk. View back to the parking lot (by the trees)

View of Spitzberg from the south

From this side, you wouldn't even think that the elevation is hiding something interesting to see in front of you. From here you can see the exit path leading along the draw separating the two fields

Under the tourist hut

After about one kilometer of comfortable ascent (we only gain about 90 meters), a tourist hut will appear in front of you.

Spitzbergbaud

We come to Spitzbergbaude, where it is possible to have refreshments. There is also a smaller parking lot, so some hikers drive all the way here

View of the top rock

Finally, the destination of this short hike, or rather a walk, is in front of us in all its beauty – the beautiful summit crag.

A pond under a rock

Even before we start climbing, we can see a small picturesque lake right next to the rock. Red fish swim here.

Spitzberg peak

We climb a few stone steps and are on one of the two accessible peaks. The German flag flies here and the view is really spectacular

The southeast is dominated by Ještěd and its ridge stretching to the Lusatian Mountains
