Explore the 1456-metre-high Großer Arber with its breathtaking views

With a height of 1456 meters, the Großer Arber near Bodenmais is the "roof of the Bavarian Forest", which is why it is often called the "King of the Bavarian Forest". Numerous exciting hikes lead from Bodenmais up to the Großer Arber, for example directly from the village via the wildly romantic Rißloch waterfalls or from the Bretterschachten activity center via the idyllic Mittagsplatzl. Once at the top, you can enjoy pure summit bliss. The view over the vastness of the Bavarian Forest is unique. With the Arberschutzhaus and the Eisensteiner Hütte, there are two rustic places to stop for refreshments serving Bavarian delicacies.

If you prefer a more leisurely approach or are out and about with the family, you can easily take the hiking bus, which is free for Bodenmais vacation guests, to the Arber valley station. From here, the modern gondola lift takes you up to the highest mountain in the Bavarian Forest. A circular trail on the summit plateau invites you to enjoy the wonderful view.
