A hike round the 1097m high Geißkopf near Bischofmais offers not only a lot of unforgettable wonders of nature. The ruins of the abanoned forest village Oberbreitenau tell about the hard life of the mountain farmers in the Bavarian Forest. Well marked hiking paths and forest roads lead on its top. If you want it more comfortable you can use the chairlift.

Hike from mountain to mountain
On top of the mountain you are attracted by the cosy mountain house "Geißkopfhütte" and the wooden look-out.  It offers overwhelming clear views over the border mountains: the Kaitersberge, the Osser, the Großer Arber, the Falkenstein, the Lusen and the Rachel over to the Dreisessel.

Hikers, for whom one mountain is not enough, can reach easily the neighbour summits Breitenauerriegel, Dreitannenriegel and Einödriegel from the mountainstation of the Geißkopfbahn.
