Cross-coun­try Ski trails on Wald­stein

The Großer Wald­stein is pop­u­lar among hikers and cross-coun­try ski­ers, espe­cially because of the stun­ning rocky back­drop it offers for many activ­it­ies. People of all ages can enjoy these activ­it­ies while soak­ing up the amaz­ing view.

The Wald­steinge­birge acts as a nat­ur­al bor­der between the north­west­ern part of the hoof-shaped Fichtel­ge­birge, the Münch­ber­ger gneiss slabs and the cent­ral parts of Fichtel­ge­birge. Among its myth­ic­al peaks, Alex­an­der von Hum­boldt dis­covered mag­net­ic ser­pent­ine rock. The cross-coun­try ski trails increase in dif­fi­culty where they meet the ver­texes.
