Fichtelberg (1,215 m above sea level) is the highest mountain in the German part of the Ore Mountains. At one time it was even the highest peak in all of East Germany. Today it is a very easily accessible hill thanks to the road leading to the very top. In addition, a cable car leads here from the highest German spa town of Kurort Oberwiesenthal. The long-distance hiking trail Zschopautal-Wanderweg also starts here

Hotel Fichtelberghaus

The easiest way to get to the top of Fichtelberg is by car. It is 5 km from Boží Dar and 6 km from Oberwiesental. The dominant feature of this flat peak is the huge chalet Hotel Fichtelberghaus. Unlike our Klínovec, it does not look desolate at all.

Czech - Saxon border

To the east is the border between Saxony and Bohemia. Long wooded ridges typical of the Ore Mountains are beautifully visible.

Panorama with Klinovec

Directly opposite, across the valley, stands the highest mountain in the entire Ore Mountains – Klínovec (1,244 m above sea level). Even further in the haze is the valley of the river Ohře
