It's nestled in a valley on the eastern border of Germany rubbing shoulders with the Czech Republic. The locals are incredibly friendly and have very few visitors from England or the US, so you are guaranteed a warm and friendly welcome, don't be surprised if they want to practice their English on you.
The Kohlhaukuppe is a traditional German restaurant frequented daily by walkers in the summer & skiers in the winter. It's certainly worth the trek. A well deserved litre jug of beer and a hearty meal will be waiting for those who have worked up an appetite. If you like garlic it's a must!
